Teaching Basic Fractions? We Have You Covered!
As students begin to dive into the world of fractions, this can be an exciting time for both teachers and students. Fractions are covered in many different year levels, so giving your students a solid foundation to work from is essential to help them with more challenging concepts.

- What is a fraction?
- Partitioning shapes
- Shading in fraction models
- Fractions on a number line
- Fractions of a collection
Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your maths lessons.
In addition to individual student work time, use this mini book to enhance learning through guided maths groups, whole class lessons or remote learning assignments.
