Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

This collection of resources supports the teaching of Fractions, Decimals and Percentages in primary mathematics. These activities are linked to the year groups containing the corresponding content in the National Curriculum. 




Here are some favourite activities selected by the NRICH team.

  • Fair Feast  (Y1) Here is a picnic that Petros and Michael are going to share equally. Can you tell us what each of them will have?

  • Making Longer, Making Shorter (Y2) Ahmed is making rods using different numbers of cubes. Which rod is twice the length of his first rod?

  • Fraction Match (Y3) A task which depends on members of the group noticing the needs of others and responding.

  • Chocolate (Y4) There are three tables in a room with blocks of chocolate on each. Where would be the best place for each child in the class to sit if they came in one at a time?

  • Spiraling Decimals (Y5) Take turns to place a decimal number on the spiral. Can you get three consecutive numbers?

  • Would you rather? (Y6)

These are just a few of the activities on  Fractions, Decimals and Percentages that you can find on the NRICH curriculum pages.
