# Y4 Maths Task- Tuesday 24th March

**Fractions and decimals**

Read the questions carefully and remember to **num****ber your answers and write them in the reply. **

You might need to work out on paper and then write it in your reply. If you have a printer, you could print it out and write your answers on there first.

This activity should take around an hour.

b) 10/10

c) 10/10

7.

This is wrong because it can also be writon as 0.1

8. I think the one with the shaded squares because you can count and there will be 8/10

Great reasoning Brooke. Time for a break

1.

a] 7 squares

b] 4 squares

c] 3 squares

2.

a] 1/10= 0.1= 0.10

b] 5/10=1/2= 0.5

c] 6/10 =0.6

d] 3/10 =0.3

3.

a] 0.1,2/10,0.6,9/10

4.

a] 0.3 or 3/10

b] 0.1 or 1/10

c] 0.3 or 3/10

5.

a] four tenths = 0.4

b] one tenths = 0.1

c] three tenths = 0.3

b] nine tenths = 0.9

d] seven tenths =0.7

6.

a] 10/10

b] 10/10

c]10/10

7.

a] ron is wrong because you can’t do 0.10

8. it is because you can count to it then just say 0.8

great understanding of fractions. Question 8 was which way of showing tenths do you prefer and why?

1: a: Shaded in 7 boxes. b: Shaded in 4 boxes. c: Shaded in 3 boxes.

2: Bar model 1: Fraction: 1/10. Decimal: 0.1. Bar model 2: Fraction: 5/10. Decimal: 0.5. Bar model 3: Fraction:6/10. Decimal: 0.6. Bar model 4: Fraction: 3/10. Decimal: 0.3.

3: 0.1 is 1 along from 0. 2/10 is 2 along from 0. 0.6 is 6 along from 0. 9/10 is 9 along from 0.

4: A: 3/10 or 0.3. B: 4/10 or 0.4. C: 7/10 or 0.7.

5: 3/10,0.3, three tenths. 9/10, 0.9, nine tenths. 7/10, 0.7, seven tenths. 4/10,0.4, four tenths. 1/10, 0.1, one tenth.

6: a:100. b:10. c:1.

7 I disagree with Ron because ten tenths would be a whole, so it wouldn’t be 0.10, it would be 1.0.

8: I think D is the best.

Great understanding Ben, great to see you on here. Hope you are enjoying the sunshine.

1.

a. 7 tenths = 7 squares b.

1 1 1 1 1 = 10/1

1 1 1 1 1

b. 4/10 = 4 squares

c. 0.3 = 3 squares c.

0.1 0.1 0.1 0.1 0.1

0.1 0.1 0.1 0.1 0.1

2.

Fraction

1/10 0.1

5/10 0.5

6/10 0.6

3/10 0.3

3.

0.1

2/10

0.6

9/10

4.

A 0.3 or 3/10

B 0.4 or 4/10

C 0.7 or 7/10

5.

3/10 0.3 three tenths

9/10 0.9 nine tenths

7/10 0.7 seven tenths

4/10 0.4 four tenths

1/10 0.1 one tenth

6.

A. 10 10 10 10 10 = 10/10

10 10 10 10 10

7. No i dont agree with Ron because it would look like 10/10.

8. I would choose C because it is shown in a clear way for people and it is obvious it is 8 squares.

1. A 7 Squares =4 squares

b. 0.3 = 3 squares

c. 4/10

2. 1/10 = 0.10

3 b 2/10 9/10 0.6

4. a 0.3 or 3 tenths

b . 0.4 or 4 tenths

c. 0.7 or 7 tenths

5. 3/10 = 0.3 =3 tenths

9/10 = 0.9 =nine tenths

7/10 = 0.7 = seven tenths

4/10 = 4.0 = 4 tenths

1/10 = 0.1 = one tenth

Good understanding of decimals and fractions

1: a = 7 squares

b= 4 squares

c= 3 squares

2: a = 1/10 or 0.1

b = 5/10 or 0.5

c = 6/10 or 0.6

d = 3/10 or 0.3

3: 0.1, 2/10,, 6/10, 0.9

4: a = 3/10 or 0.3

b = 4/10 or 0.4

c = 7/10 or 0.7

5: 3/10 or 0.3 or three tenths

9/10 or 0.9 or nine tenths

7/10 or 0.7 or seven tenths

4/10 or 0.4 or four tenths

1/10 or 0.1 or one tenth

6: a = 100

b = 10

c = 1

7: this is wrong as he done 0.1 not 1

8: I think it’s the shaded one as it’s easier to understand

Great understanding Owen

1.

a) 7 tenth =7 squares

b)4 tenths=4 squares

y

c)0.3=3 squares shaded at the back

2.

fraction decimal-yes

yes

yes

yes

3.

0.1-2 tenths-0.6-9 tenths

4.

A=4 tenths or 0.4

B=5 tenths or 0.5

C=8 tenths or 0.8

5.

3-10 goes to 0.3 goes to three tenths

9-10 goes to 0.9 goes to nine tenths

7-10 goes to 0.7 goes to seven tenths

4-10 goes to 0.4 goes to four tenths

1-10 goes to 0.1 goes to one tenths

6.

100

10

0.10

7.

yes because 1-10 and 1-9 can be 0.10 or 0.9 and there decimals

8.

the best is c

6 squares

0.1+0.1+0.1+0.1+0.1+0.1

Great understanding of decimals and Fractions Kristers

1a) 7 squares shaded

b) 4 squares shaded

c) 3 squares shaded

2a) 1/10, 0.1

b) 5/10, 0.5

c) 3/10, 0.3

3) 0.1, 2/10, 0.6, 9/10

4 a) 3/10 or 0.3

b) 4/10 or 0.4

c) 7/10 or 0.7

5) 3/10- 0.3- three tenths

9/10- 0.9- 9 tenths

7/10- 0.7- seven tenths

4/10- 0.4- four tenths

1/10- 0.1- one tenths

6) 1.0

0.1

0.01

7) He is incorrect. 10tenths as a fraction is 10/10 so in decimal it will be 1.00.

b) 10

c) 1

7.

I don’t agree with Ron as 10/10 is 1, not 0.10

8. a b c d

The best representation is D
