In KS2 Maths, Year Six students learn about fractions. Fractions show part of a whole number. There are two types: proper fractions (top number smaller than the bottom) and improper fractions (top number larger than the bottom).

Kids should know numerators and denominators. Improper fractions can become mixed numbers. For instance, ^{4}⁄_{3} equals 1^{1}⁄_{3}. Fractions might seem tricky, but our Fractions in Maths article can help your child understand them better.

1.

Which of these are NOT equivalent to each other?

2.

What do we call the bottom number of a fraction?

Numerator

Factor

Multiple

Denominator

The denominator tells us the number of parts the whole is divided into

3.

How do we reduce ^{5}⁄_{20} to an equivalent fraction?

Divide the numerator and denominator by 2

Divide the numerator and denominator by the same number

Multiply the numerator and denominator by 2

Multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number

We have to find the lowest common multiple of 5 and 20 which is 5 so the equivalent will be ^{1}⁄_{4}

4.

What is the numerator?

The top number of a fraction

The bottom number of a fraction

The divider between the two numbers of a fraction

The whole number in a mixed fraction

The numerator tells us how many of the equal parts there are

5.

How many ^{1}⁄_{1,000} in a whole one?

10

100

1,000

10,000

6.

What would ^{12}⁄_{9} be when converted to a mixed number?

3^{3}⁄_{9}

1^{1}⁄_{3}

1^{4}⁄_{9}

2^{1}⁄_{9}

7.

What would 2^{2}⁄_{6} be when converted to an improper fraction?

8.

Which of these statements is FALSE?

One half is 3 times more than one sixth

One third is twice as much as one sixth

One twentieth is half of one tenth

One hundredth is ten times more than one tenth

One tenth is ten times more than one hundredth

9.

Which is an equivalent of ^{6}⁄_{15}?

6 ÷ 3 = 2 and 15 ÷ 3 = 5 so ^{2}⁄_{5} is the same as ^{6}⁄_{15}

10.

How do we change ^{3}⁄_{10} to an equivalent fraction?

Divide the numerator by the denominator

Divide the numerator and denominator by the same number

Multiply the numerator by the denominator

Multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number

If we multiply by 10 the equivalent fraction will be ^{30}⁄_{100}

^{1}⁄_{5}=^{2}⁄_{10}
