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 ^{1}⁄_{3} in fraction form, or that three quarters is ^{3}⁄_{4}. 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.

1.

Which represents one third?

2.

What does ^{1}⁄_{10} mean?

One whole one divided into ten equal parts

Ten whole ones divided equally

Five whole ones divided equally

One whole one divided into two equal parts

3.

If we have ^{3}⁄_{4} what is needed to make a whole?

4.

Which of these is equivalent to ^{5}⁄_{10}?

If you divide 5 by 5 you get 1 and if you divide 10 by 5 you get two so ^{5}⁄_{10} is the same as ^{1}⁄_{2}

5.

Which is the smallest of these fractions?

If the numbers above the line are the same then the higher the number below the line the lower the fraction is

6.

One third and which other fraction make a whole one?

7.

What is a quarter of 12?

3

4

6

9

To calculate a quarter divide by 4

8.

Which fraction lies exactly between ^{1}⁄_{2} and 1?

9.

How many tenths in one whole?

5

10

2

4

A tenth is one part when the whole is divided into ten equal parts

10.

Which is the largest of these fractions?

^{1}⁄_{3}is the same as 1 ÷ 3
