L86 Cassowary sanctuary
 Learning area Mathematics, Science
 Published 21/07/2017
 TLFID L86
Help a park ranger to arrange fencing in a wildlife sanctuary. Divide common geometric shapes into equalsized 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
 TLFID 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.

S4910 Fraction wall with decimals
 Learning area Mathematics
 Published 08/04/2016
 TLFID 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.
