Operations with fractions
Description of activity
Students are asked to solve various problems involving operations with fractions.
This assessment activity could be presented to students at the end of a unit on fractions, where students have been investigating the four operations and solving problems related to fractions.
- develop understanding and fluency in mathematics through inquiry, exploring and connecting mathematical concepts, choosing and applying problem-solving skills and mathematical techniques, communication and reasoning
- develop efficient strategies for numerical calculation, recognise patterns, describe relationships and apply algebraic techniques and generalisation
Criteria for assessing learning
(These criteria would normally be communicated to students with the activity.) Students will be assessed on their ability to:
- perform the processes of addition and multiplication of fractions
- apply multiplication of fractions in a meaningful context.
