This term we are working with fractions, decimals and percentages. To begin the week we have learned a little more about equivalent fractions by playing the game, ‘Property Developer’. To play the game you need two players, two dice and some counters. The aim of the game is to occupy the most apartments by rolling the dice and making a fraction. If you roll a 2 and a 3 then you can make the fraction 2/3 therefore you can occupy two windows on a three bedroom apartment. If your partner has already occupied this apartment then you could make an equivalent fraction such s 4/6 or 8/12 and occupy those apartments instead. This game is great for getting us to recognise that different fractions actually represent the same amount.
