Testimonials

What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

It is quite frankly the best money I have ever spent on my child. I really cannot thank you enough for providing this, it really is brilliant.

You have the most amazing program. Everybody loves it and the student's results have been in the high 90%'s, it's definitely due to your program.

  • 5 – Year 5
    • 5.NA – Number and algebra
      • 5.NA.1 – Apply additive and simple multiplicative strategies and knowledge of symmetry to:

        • 5.NA.1.b – find fractions of sets, shapes, and quantities

  • 6 – Year 6
    • 6.NA – Number and algebra
      • 6.NA.1 – Apply additive and simple multiplicative strategies flexibly to:

        • 6.NA.1.b – Find fractions of sets, shapes, and quantities

  • Year 4
    • Number and Algebra
      • Fractions and decimals

        • ACMNA077 – Investigate equivalent fractions used in contexts

  • KS2.Y3 – KS2 Year 3
    • Year 3 programme of study
      • KS2.Y3.N.F – Number - fractions

        • Pupils should be taught to:

          • KS2.Y3.N.F.2 – Recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators

  • 3 – Grade 3
    • 3.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 3.G.2 – Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.

    • 3.NF – Number & Operations—Fractions¹ (Grade 3 expectations in this domain are limited to fractions with denominators 2, 3, 4, 6, 8.)
      • Mathematics

        • 3.NF.3 – Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.

          • 3.NF.3.a – Understand two fractions as equivalent (equal) if they are the same size, or the same point on a number line.

          • 3.NF.3.c – Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.

          • 3.NF.3.d – Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
