Day 8 Crew! Happy Thursday! Today we are recapping how we can represent fractions using a bar model.

Remember a bar model is a pictorial diagrams showing both the numerator and denominator as equal parts. The Denominator is the number of equal parts in total (Do not forget the denominator does not change). The numerator is the number of equal parts shaded in.

**Do not forget to SIMPLIFY if possible for some answers. For example, 25/45 you do not need to do a bar model of 45 boxes! you can simplify 25/45 to 5/9 because 5 goes into both 25 and 45, so a bar model of 5/9 is perfect!**

Answer all the questions below, draw the bar models and identify each fraction.

I have done it in my homework book and I’ve done silver.

I found it easy.

Done it

Good morning, teachers and children. My homework book is nearly finished, what should I do?

I have completed the task.

Hi Marvin, hope you’re well. If you have another note book at home to use feel free to use that. Otherwise there are 2 options I can think of:

1) do your written work on paper and keep it in a box/folder/one safe space.

2) do your written work on a word document and keep track of it. You can either save a new one each day, or keep one document and put in a date and title. Then you only have to do handwriting on paper (and your handwriting is excellent!)

Good afternoon

I have an extra book for him to use,so his sorted.

Thanks

Good work Sarina, but these need to be done as bar models in your book too, if you can. You will need to use a ruler and measure the blocks. Remember the vars always need to be the same size.

Done it.

That’s good to hear. How did you do it? Where did you do it? Did you find it easy or tricky?

Well done Inaaya. How did you get on with this task?

Keep checking the blogs daily. Thank you.

Hello Zavian! I hope you completed all of silver! I know you can do it!

Bronze.

1. 1/2

2. 8/9

3. 5/6

4. 9/2

Haniah count how many are shaded in and how many there are in total. If there are 4 shaded and 6 in total, this would be 4/6

Hello I did the silver challenge. Mr Inman video really helped me understand. My mum helped me with the first one and then I did it by myself. 30/70= 3/7 they are both a multiple of 10 so I divided by 10. I find dividing a bit tricky so I counted on.

Well done Rayyan. Super effort.

Well done Rayyan I am glad Mr Inman’s video helped and your mum’s helping you .You are hard working boy Rayyan 👍

done it.

Braydon first simplify the fraction and then represent it as a bar model.

Ok
