 Numbers can be divided into two halves or four quarters.

# Year 2 Fractions - Numbers

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.
