KS1 Maths Quiz - Year 2 Fractions - Equivalent Fractions (Questions)

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 recognising equivalent fractions.

Recognising, writing and naming fractions are all important steps in Year 2. Equivalent fractions means two or more fractions which have the same value. For example, two quarters and one half are both the same, as are two halves, four quarters and 1 whole.
