Maths pages 16-17

These pages in the Year 2 book are all about fractions.  When you find a fraction of a shape, you split it into equal parts.  If you share it into two equal parts, you’ve made halves/found a half.  If you share it into four equal parts then you’ve found quarters.  If you share it into three equal parts then you’ve made thirds.

When you write a fraction, the bottom number (denominator) shows how many equal parts the shape is shared into.  The top number (numerator) shows how many of those parts you have.  Have a look on this website for a bit more information and to have a go at finding and recognising fractions.
