  • Hello. The turquoise card on the higher ability has the 6 in the wrong place - as a denominator instead of a numerator. (Unless the whole year group had thar friday feeling). Good resource otherwise was used with year 4.

    • Hi Ruth90,
      I apologise if this mistake has caused any problems. I'll let our design team know about it right away and they will get it fixed as soon as they can!

  • Hi yearfive, thank you for your comment, I have passed your suggestion on to our resource team to see what they can do. :)

  • Great resource, but would be much more useful if there were answer cards so the children could mark them themselves.

    • Hi Yearfive, just a thought but you could encourage your pupils to check their answers using a ruler or pencil in the vertical position. If they put the ruler directly over the number they are converting in a straight line (vertically) then when they look higher or lower they will reach the correct equivalent. You could also have them swap with the person next to them to have their partner check their answers.

Make maths fun with these equivalent fractions challenge cards! Each card features a different challenge with visual representations to help your children relate maths problems to real-life scenarios.
