# Equivalent Fractions and Ordering of Fractions (Primary 4)

MATHEMATICS

SMASE – ASEI PDSI METHOD

FIRST TERM

WEEK 5

PRIMARY 4

TOPIC – ORDERING OF EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS

LEARNING AREA

• Lesson One – Introduction to Equivalent Fractions
• Lesson Two – Equivalent Fractions
• Lesson Three – Ordering of Fractions
• Revision and Weekly Assessment

TIME – 40 Minutes each.

LEARNING OUTCOME

By the end of the lesson, pupils should be able to:

1. obtain equivalent fractions of a given fraction.
2. ordering pairs of fractions.
3. solve quantitative reasoning on equivalent fractions.

RATIONALE

Fractions really are everywhere!  Every time we cut an apple, an orange, or any kind of fruit, we are taking a piece of the whole. We can represent those pieces as fractions.  Fractions are part of a whole. That’s part of something bigger. Fractions have two numbers, a numerator (the part) and a denominator (the whole). Equivalent Fractions are equal in value. They represent the same amount of the whole.

The concept of ordering equivalent fractions will enable the pupils understand fraction of the same value.

LEARNING MATERIALS

The teacher will teach the lesson with the aid of:

1. Orange
2. Paper cuttings of different shapes.
3. Fraction charts
4. Squares
5. Cardboards
6. Flow chart of quantitative reasoning.
7. Flash cards
