And i’m pootling around help sites but i can’t find what i need. I’m going to have to get the teaching book, but i need to see my way through this a bit more quickly. We’ve followed what the book has told us to do so far, but now it seems to have dropped us without the crucial step.
1/6 of 5 = 1/6 x 5
We’ve learned to do 10 divided by 6 which gives us 6 lots of 1 with a remainder of 4.
Now i’m stuck on how to give her a fail safe way of getting the remainder divided up into the groups. She’d started putting the remainder on top of the denominator, which so far appears to work, but i don’t know why and i’m not convinced it will carry on doing so! So what is the final step, or would she be better off doing something else completely?
