To continue our work on fractions, we used fraction blocks today to help us to find equivalent fractions before moving on to the mathematical way of calculating them.

How do I find factors of numbers?


First, we worked in pairs to find the different arrays we can make using 12 counters. This showed us the factors of a number. We then learnt how to record these factors in factor bug pictures!
