This SMILE resource contains three packs of games, investigations, worksheets and practical activities supporting the teaching and learning of fractions, from exploring halves and quarters to investigating fractions whose decimal equivalents are recurring decimals.
Fractions pack one contains eleven work cards with activities covering halves and quarters, matching fractions with pictorial equivalents, shading fractions, investigating adding fractions to make a whole, and equivalent fractions.
Fractions pack two contains seven work cards with activities requiring students to calculate a fraction of a whole number, find equivalent fractions, and sort fractions into order of size.
Fractions pack three contains ten work cards with activities covering forming fractions by splitting up a square, comparing fractions, investigating what happens when the one is added to both numerator and denominator, adding fractions, finding fraction, decimal and percentage equivalents, Egyptian fractions, and investigating recurring decimals.
SMILE (Secondary Mathematics Individualised Learning Experiment) was initially developed as a series of practical activities for secondary school students by practising teachers in the 1970s. It became a complete individualised scheme based around a network of activity cards and assessments. Related resources include answers to all of the cards and test books and answers.
