# Year 2 Fractions - Lengths

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with finding fractions of lengths.

Understanding fractions of length means firstly being able to halve or quarter by dividing by 2 or 4. Applying this to a unit of measurement may mean having to convert units - for example, if asked to find half of 1m, it would first be sensible to recognise that 1m = 100cm.
