    L86 Cassowary sanctuary

    • Learning area Mathematics, Science
    • Published 21/07/2017
    • TLF-ID L86

    Help a park ranger to arrange fencing in a wildlife sanctuary. Divide common geometric shapes into equal-sized sections for keeping cassowaries. Group the enclosures to form a quarantine zone for sick and injured birds. Then express divisions of the enclosures as fractions. Work through facts about the life of cassowaries: physical characteristics; diet; habitat; life cycles; and locations. Interact with graphs to see how people can help to save cassowaries. Answer questions as you go; express your answers as fractions. This learning object is a combination of two objects in the same series.

    L134 Dynamic fractions

    • Learning area Mathematics
    • Published 31/03/2016
    • TLF-ID L134

    Use a tool to explore how to express fractions and display them in different ways. Create a grid with a number of rectangles ranging from 1 to 100 (up to a 10x10 array). Select boxes within the grid and view or enter corresponding fractions and their equivalents. Interact with a dynamic number line to express fractions differently. Change display options to set task difficulty. Make your own question and answer games.

    L6542 Exploring fractions

    • Learning area Mathematics
    • Published 15/03/2016
    • TLF-ID L6542

    Use partially filled measuring cups to explore fractions: improper, mixed and equivalent fractions. For example, select six cups which are one-quarter full to balance one and a half cups. Or achieve an equivalent result by selecting three cups, which are half full.

    S4910 Fraction wall with decimals

    • Learning area Mathematics
    • Published 08/04/2016
    • TLF-ID S4910

    On this interactive fraction wall students are required to build up layers of the wall by dragging and dropping blocks representing different unit fractions. Students can select from the options of building the wall on a blank screen, finding fractions equivalent to a whole or to a half, or filling in a wall that already has some fractions shown on it. Concepts related to fractions that are greater than, less than or equivalent to can be explored. Students can write sentences to describe their findings and add these to the wall they construct.
