KS1 Maths Quiz
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
