Assessment resource Kick the goal: add improper fractions 1: assessment

TLF ID L9812

Test your understanding of fractions by creating pairs that would add up to a target number. Target numbers can be whole numbers, mixed numbers or improper fractions. For example, work out how many ninths and how many thirds to add together to reach twelve-ninths. There are six tasks to complete. View and print a report of your results. This assessment object is one in a series of four objects.

Educational details

Key learning objectives
  • Students identify equivalent fractions.
  • Students identify pairs of fractions (proper and/or improper) that add up to a whole number (up to 4).

  • Provides a framework for students to make and test predictions.
  • Allows for more than one correct response to many questions.
  • Allows for divergent thinking within a computation situation.
  • Tasks are randomised.
