Year 2 Fractions - Shapes
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.

Question 1
24
14
12
34
The shape is divided into four equal sections – each one is a quarter. One is shaded
Question 2
8
6
5
10
Each shape has 4 quarters so there are 8 altogether
Question 3
24
34
44
14
3 of the 4 quarters are not shaded, only one quarter is shaded
Question 4
5
3
6
9
Each shape has 3 thirds. There are 3 shapes so 3 x 3 = 9
Question 5
23
14
13
12
One of the three equal parts is called a third
Question 6
12
34
25
14
There are four quarters. If I shaded two of them, it would be half of the shape
Question 7
24
14
44
12
The whole shape is shaded – this is 4 quarters
Question 8
24
14
34
12
If you shaded in 1 quarter, and then 2 more, you would have shaded 3 of the 4 quarters
Question 9
24
They are both the same
12
34
12 is the same as 24 so 34 is greater
Question 10
34, 14, 12
14, 34, 12
12, 14, 34
14, 12, 34
12 is the same as 24
