# Maths

Currently in Maths, we are looking at FRACTIONS.

We are learning to compare and order fractions.

We are learning to add and subtract fractions with different denominators.

We have been focusing on convert fractions by finding the LCM (Lowest Common Multiple) and this has allowed us to order, add and subtract fractions more easily.

Our success criteria for fractions is below...

Add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions

o solve increasingly complex problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions

o apply my knowledge of adding/subtracting fractions to more complex examples where one denominator is not a multiple of the other, for example: 2/5 and 4/7

o rewrite the expression as equivalent fractions with the same denominator

o express two fractions with the same denominator by finding the lowest common multiple of the denominators

o present the answer to an addition/subtraction calculation in its simplest terms

o know that to add or subtract fractions, you must only add/subtract the numerator and give the answer with the same denominator

o rewrite an addition or subtraction of two fractions as equivalent fractions with the same denominator

o express two fractions in the same denomination where one denominator is a multiple of the other, for example: 1/2 and 1/8

o understand that fractions cannot be compared easily, or added or subtracted, until they have the same denominator

o use multiplication and division to create sets of fractions that are equivalent

o understand the concept of equivalent fractions
