*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 numbers.*

Finding fractions of numbers means being able to understand that a number split into two equal groups has been halved, and that a number split into four equal groups has been quartered. 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.

Help your child get used to dealing with parts of numbers by reading our Learning Fractions page. Itâ€™s really useful.

Question 1

What is half of 8?

4

2

16

8

4 + 4 = 8 so half of 8 is 4

Question 2

What is ^{1}⁄_{2} of 12?

10

24

4

6

6 + 6 = 12 so ^{1}⁄_{2} of 12 is 6

Question 3

Which is greater: half of 10 or a quarter of 20?

They are both the same

Half of 10

A quarter of 20

Five

Half of 10 is 5 and a quarter of 20 is also 5!

Question 4

To find half of a number, you should divide it by...

1

4

2

8

Both halves must be equal and identical

Question 5

How do you find a quarter of a number?

Divide it by 4

Divide it by 2

Multiply it by 4

Multiply it by 2

Find a quarter by dividing the number into 4 equal parts

Question 6

What is 20 halved?

8

12

2

10

Halving a number is the same as dividing it by 2

Question 7

Two quarters is the same as...

If you put two quarters together, they make a half

Question 8

What is ^{1}⁄_{4} of 20?

4

5

10

40

20 ÷ 4 = 5 so ^{1}⁄_{4} of 20 is 5

Question 9

Which is greater: ^{0}⁄_{4} ^{1}⁄_{4} ^{2}⁄_{4} or ^{3}⁄_{4}?

Three of the quarters would be more than two, one or none of them!

Question 10

What is a quarter of 12?

6

4

3

48

12 divided into 4 equal parts is 3
