I’ve been creating a lot of resources for a fractions unit in Year 7 over the last month or so. I think they’re just about finished now, so I thought I’d share them.

**Part 1: Shading Fractions**

3 tiers of difficulty (Sup = supported, Med = Medium, Higher = Higher…duh!).

I tried to write these in such a way that the visualisation of fractions as a proportion rather than a literal size comes across.

**Part 2: Equivalent Fractions**

Again, emphasis on pictoral representation initally, with visually challenging versions of fractions for higher groups. Abstract examples also include algebra – which incidentally I feel should be generally integrated into all topics rather than completely stand alone.

**Part 3: Equivalent Fractions**

I only made one worksheet for this, as it’s diferentiated within the questions (columned tiers of difficulty). Similar to the first 2 sections, starting with an emphasis on pictoral representation, switching to abstract, switching to algebra.

**Part 4: Adding / Subtracting Fractions**

Adding and Subtracting Fractions

3 tiers of worksheet, followed by a different sheet altogether that differentiates through columns of increasing difficulty. Bar modelling of sorts is used for pictoral introductions.

**Part 5: Multiplying Fractions**

2 sets of near identical tiered worksheet. One version uses bar models in one style, the other uses a perhaps more favourable ‘area’ style version. (see below for examples)

(Above is one way of multiplying using bar-style representation)

Multiplying Fractions_Lower_ALT

Multiplying Fractions_Higher_ALT

(Above is the second style that I think is maybe more intuitive?)

**Part 6: Dividing Fractions**

Just two versions this time. I suspect the intermediate version will be sufficiently difficult for higher groups if you lead which questions they attempt, rather than go linear start to end.

**Part 7: Fractions of Amounts
**

Again just two versions for the same reason as before.

**Part 8: Extras**

I didn’t make these, but they’re useful:
