*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.

Question 1

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 2

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 3

Two quarters is the same as...

If you put two quarters together, they make a half

Question 4

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 5

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

1

4

2

8

Both halves must be equal and identical

Question 6

What is half of 8?

4

2

16

8

4 + 4 = 8 so half of 8 is 4

Question 7

What is 20 halved?

8

12

2

10

Halving a number is the same as dividing it by 2

Question 8

What is ^{1}⁄_{2} of 12?

10

24

4

6

6 + 6 = 12 so ^{1}⁄_{2} of 12 is 6

Question 9

What is ^{1}⁄_{4} of 20?

4

5

10

40

20 ÷ 4 = 5 so ^{1}⁄_{4} of 20 is 5

Question 10

What is a quarter of 12?

6

4

3

48

12 divided into 4 equal parts is 3
