Author: David Morse

This particular set allows students to practise working out fractions of quantities when the numerator of the fraction is not ‘1’.

In this download there are four sets of similar cards and a student chooses one of the sets and sorts them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has the same questions, but a different sort order
