 A quarter of 12 is 3.

# Fractions (Year 3)

In KS2 Maths children will learn more about fractions. This begins in Year Three with children recognising the values of different fractions, for example that a quarter is the same as 1 divided by 4, or that a half is the same as two quarters.

If you cut a cake up to share amongst your friends you are dividing it into fractions. Fractions are numbers which are less than a whole. You may know that one third is written as 13 in fraction form, or that three quarters is 34. But how good are you at recognising their values? How many thirds or quarters make a whole? And which is bigger - two thirds or a half?

Practise what you have learned in your Maths classes so far by playing this quiz all about fractions and see how good you are at recognising their values.
