1.  ### L86 Cassowary sanctuary

• Learning area Mathematics, Science
• Published 06/03/2018
• 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.

2.  ### L3521 Fractions: comparing

• Learning area Mathematics
• Published 31/03/2016
• TLF-ID L125

Help a town planner to design site plans. Assign regions on a 10x20 grid for different uses. Calculate the percentage and the fraction of the total site used for each region. Use a number line to display fractions and equivalent decimals. Design site plans for a: 1. Neighbourhood; 2. City; 3. Farm. This learning object is a combination of three objects in a series.

6.  ### 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.

7.  ### L3520 Fraction pieces

• Learning area Mathematics
• Published 19/05/2016
