Succeed with maths – Part 1

7 Summary

This week you furthered your study of fractions and the aim was to put in place the foundations that you will need to be able to carry out calculations using fractions. Week 4 will remind you of these ideas, so you’ll be getting more and more practice to help to you remember these new found skills. You will have also come across quite a bit of new language relating to fractions this week. It may be useful to make yourself a list of these words, with a brief definition of your own before you start on Week 4.

For now, though, congratulations on making it this far through your study of fractions. You should now feel more confident in:

  • understanding the language of fractions
  • writing and understanding fractions
  • understanding and finding the simplest form of a fraction
  • converting between improper fractions and mixed numbers, and vice versa.

You can now go to Week 4 [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .
