Directed Number & Fractional Thinking
This unit is designed to extend and deepen pupils understanding of directed numbers and fractions. We will use a vertical number line alongside double sided counters to represent and work with directed numbers. We will use a horizontal number line alongside multiple representations to develop students conceptual understanding of fractions. These representations and contexts will be used to ensure pupils appreciate the meaning these types of numbers rather than relying on a set of potentially confusing “rules”.
