In KS2 Maths as children advance to Year Five their knowledge of fractions will increase. By now they should know the values of different fractions and will be introduced to numerators and denominators, proper and improper fractions and mixed numbers.

Fractions denote numbers that are less than a unit. One way of writing these 'partial' numbers is by using a decimal point. These are called decimal numbers. An example would be 2.5. 2.5 as a fraction would be written as 2^{1}⁄_{2}. 2^{1}⁄_{2} is a mixed number. Another way to write it would be ^{5}⁄_{2} which is an improper fraction. Proper fractions have numerators which are lower than their denominators.

See how much you have remembered from your classes by playing this quiz about proper and improper fractions, numerators and denominators.

1.

Which fraction is one ninth?

2.

Which fraction is ^{25}⁄_{100} equivalent to?

100 ÷ 25 = 4

3.

Which of these is a proper fraction?

A proper fraction has a top number less than the bottom number

4.

Which fraction is more than ^{1}⁄_{4}?

5.

Which is the largest of these fractions?

6.

What would ^{6}⁄_{4} be when converted to a mixed number?

4^{1}⁄_{2}

1^{1}⁄_{2}

1^{1}⁄_{4}

2^{1}⁄_{4}

A mixed number is where there is a mix of a whole number and a fraction

7.

Which fraction is less than ^{1}⁄_{2}?

2 x 7 = 14 so ^{7}⁄_{15} is slightly less than half

8.

Which of these fractions is not equivalent to ^{1}⁄_{3}?

9.

What would 3^{1}⁄_{4} be when converted to an improper fraction?

There are ^{4}⁄_{4} in 1 unit so 3 units = ^{12}⁄_{4}

10.

What type of fraction is ^{6}⁄_{5}?

Mixed fraction

Equivalent fraction

Improper fraction

Unsuitable fraction

An improper fraction has a top number more than the bottom number
