1 Video
• In this lesson, we will develop understanding of equivalent fractions through the contexts of measuring and pouring.

1 Video
• In this lesson, we will identify and use the relationship between the numerator and denominator to identify equivalent fractions.

1 Video
• In this lesson, we will scale the numerator and denominator by the same factor to produce equivalent equations.

1 Video
• In this lesson, we will practise seeing both vertical and horizontal relationships in the context of equivalent fractions.

1 Video
• In this lesson, we will introduce equivalent fractions for non-unit fractions.

1 Video
• In this lesson, we will explore the relationship between numerators and denominators including non-unit fractions.

1 Video
• In this lesson, we will practise using both vertical and horizontal relationships in fractions to find missing numbers.

1 Video
• In this lesson, we will practise solving fraction problems where we are required to identify a numerator or denominator in a given fraction equation.

1 Video
• In this lesson, we will revise the language of 'factor', 'multiple' and 'common factor. '

1 Video
• In this lesson, we introduce simplifying fractions, using fractions that can be simplified into unit fractions.

1 Video
• In this lesson, we will express fractions in their simplest forms using the terms 'common factor' and 'highest common factor'.

1 Video
