Fraction Friday

Today for Fraction Friday Miss Eyre asked us to divide our class of 12 into 2 halves. 

We had to do it all by ourselves, so there was lots of discussion and team work. 

At first we had 7 on one side, and 5 on the other side of the string. 

That wasn't right because those two numbers are not the same! We had to do some serious thinking to figure it out. 

After lots of great discussion and thinking we discovered that half of 12 is 6, and we had 6 students on each side. And we are Room 6! What a coincidence!

  1. Great problem solving Room 6! I wonder what dilemma Miss Eyre will have you solve next?
