Year 2 Fractions - Shapes
If a shape is divided into four equal parts it has been quartered.

Year 2 Fractions - Shapes

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 shapes.

Finding fractions of shapes means being able to understand that a shape split into two equal parts has been halved, that a shape split into four equal parts (perhaps by halving and then halving again) has been quartered and a shape split into three equal parts is in thirds. Children in Year 2 should also recognise the equivalence of two quarters equalling one half, and also that three quarters is greater than a half, but less than the whole. Using division is key when working out and finding fractions of whole numbers.

  1. Question 1

    One of the three equal parts is called a third
  2. Question 2

    3 of the 4 quarters are not shaded, only one quarter is shaded
  3. Question 3

    If you shaded in 1 quarter, and then 2 more, you would have shaded 3 of the 4 quarters
  4. Question 4

    12 is the same as 24 so 34 is greater
  5. Question 5

    There are four quarters. If I shaded two of them, it would be half of the shape
  6. Question 6

    The whole shape is shaded – this is 4 quarters
  7. Question 7

    12 is the same as 24
  8. Question 8

    Each shape has 4 quarters so there are 8 altogether
  9. Question 9

    The shape is divided into four equal sections – each one is a quarter. One is shaded
  10. Question 10

    Each shape has 3 thirds. There are 3 shapes so 3 x 3 = 9
