Unit Title
Year level
6/7
The aim of this unit of work is for all students to understand addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of
fractions, and to be able to find the lowest common denominator
Duration
3 weeks
Key Idea
(Content descriptors)
Compare fractions with related denominators (and unrelated) and locate and represent them on a number line(ACMNA125& 152)
Solve problems involving addition and subtraction (as well as multiplication and division) of fractions with the same or related
denominators (ACMNA126 &154)
Find a simple fraction of a quantity where the result is a whole number, with and without digital technologies (ACMNA127)
Elaboration(s)
understanding the processes for adding and subtracting fractions with related (and unrelated) denominators and fractions as an
operator, in preparation for calculating with all fractions
solving realistic additive (addition and subtraction) problems involving fractions to develop understanding of equivalent fractions
and the use of fractions as operators
modelling and solving additive problems involving fractions by using methods such as jumps on a number line, or by making
diagrams of fractions as parts of shapes
recognising that finding one third of a quantity is the same as dividing by 3
Capabilities

Setting the class up so
that it can be
differentiated as all
students will have all
the addition and
multiplication rules so
that they can refer to it
Students only do
questions they feel like
they need to do ie.
People who feel
comfortable with
addition can just do
multiplication
