## 28 Fraction Word Problems for Year 2 to Year 6 With Tips On Supporting Pupils’ Progress

Emma johnson.

Fraction word problems are an important piece in teaching fractions. Fractions are a key component of the National Curriculum throughout primary, with children introduced to the concept in Year 1 and continuously building upon their knowledge and understanding, through to Year 6 and beyond.

The abstract nature of fractions makes them one of the more difficult areas of maths for children to understand. It is essential that they are taught through the use of concrete resources and visual images, but also through a link to the real world. Word problems are a great way to help children develop this understanding and should be used alongside any fluency work the children do.

To help you with this, we have put together a collection of 20 word problems which can be used with children from Year 2 to Year 6.

## Fractions in KS1

Pupils are first introduced to fractions in Year 1, where they begin to recognise a half and quarter of a shape or quantity. As they progress through Key Stage 1, they are introduced to a wider range of fractions.

In Year 2 pupils need to be able to recognise, find, name and write fractions \frac{1}{3}, \ \frac{1}{4}, \ \frac{2}{4} and \frac{3}{4} of lengths, shape, a set of objects or quantity.

## Fractions in lower KS2

Once pupils move into Key Stage 2, there is an increased focus on fractions, with a significant period of time dedicated to developing students’ knowledge and building on previous learning from Year 3 through to Year 6.

In Year 3, pupils are taught to count in tenths; recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects; understand the term ‘unit’ and ‘non-unit’ fractions; recognise equivalent fractions, compare and order fractions and add/subtract fractions with the same denominator. At this stage, pupils also begin to solve simple problems involving fractions.

As pupils progress into Year 4, they are also introduced to the concept of decimals alongside the work on fractions. They build upon their understanding of equivalent fractions and adding/ subtracting fractions (still with the same denominator.

They also learn to count up and down in hundredths, recognise and write decimals equivalent to \frac{1}{4}, \ \frac{1}{2} and \frac{3}{4} and begin to solve problems with increasingly harder fractions.

## Fractions in upper KS2

As pupils continue through the school, into upper Key Stage 2, they continue to build on their learning. They are introduced to mixed numbers and improper fractions. They are also introduced to the concept of percentages alongside fractions and decimals.

In Year 5, children build on the knowledge gained in Year 4, comparing and ordering fractions; recognising equivalent fractions; addition and subtraction of fractions (with different denominators, but multiples of the same number). Fractions appear in addition and subtraction word problems .

They are also introduced to the multiplication of fractions; converting between improper fractions and mixed numbers and the link between fractions, decimals and percentages. By Year 5 pupils will be completing more complex problems, including multi-step word problems and multiplication word problems .

In Year 6, pupils consolidate and build upon the knowledge of fractions they have gained so far. Pupils continue to add and subtract fractions (with different denominators and mixed numbers). They also develop their understanding of how to multiply fractions and begin to divide fractions by whole numbers, combining fraction and division word problems .

Pupils also continue to build upon their understanding of the equivalences between fractions, decimals and percentages and solve increasingly complex one-step, two-step and multi-step percentage word problems .

Word problems, alongside the use of concrete resources and visual images, help children to make sense of the abstract nature of fractions.

For example, if children were presented with the question \frac{6}{8} ÷ 3, some might find this difficult to access. If children are given it as a word problem, alongside a visual image, it becomes much more accessible.

The above calculation as a word problem :

‘3 children shared \ \it{\frac{6}{8}} of a pizza, how much did each child get?’

Children can see and understand the concept of 3 children sharing 6 slices of pizza, compared to just seeing the written calculation.

As with all word problems, the first thing children need to do is read the question carefully and make sure they understand what is being asked. They then have to decide what calculation is needed and whether they can represent it pictorially.

Here is an example:

Ben has a bag of 48 sweets.

He gives \frac{3}{8} of his bag to his brother

How many sweets does he have left?

How to solve:

What do you already know?

- There are 48 sweets altogether.
- The denominator is 8, so we know we need to divide the 48 by 8. This will tell us how many sweets in \frac{1}{8} .
- The numerator is 3, therefore we need to multiply the answer by 3, to tell us how many sweets are \frac{3}{8} .
- The last step of the problem is to find out how many sweets Ben has left.
- We can either calculate \frac{5}{8} , as we know Ben must have \frac{5}{8} left, or we subtract the number of sweets in \frac{3}{8} from the total of 48.

How can this be drawn/represented pictorially?

- We can draw a bar model, split into 8 sections.
- The 48 sweets are then shared between the 8 sections (each worth \frac{1}{8} ).
- We can see that \frac{3}{8} of the 48 sweets equals 18 sweets.
- We can then either subtract 18 from 48, to work out how many sweets were left. 48 – 18 = 30
- Alternatively, we can calculate how many sweets are in \frac{5}{8} , which is 30.

Word problems are tied in throughout Third Space Learning’s online one-to-one tuition programmes. Tutors work with students to break down word problems and identify the operations needed to solve problems.

The following section lays out the types of fraction word problems that you can expect to see by year group in primary school.

At Third Space Learning we incorporate word problems into our one-to-one online tutoring . With each lesson designed to suit the needs of each individual student, our tutoring programme aims to deepen mathematical understanding and confidence in maths.

Fraction word problems are a great way to strengthen students’ conceptual understanding of fractions and grow their problem solving skills. Take a look at our article on fraction games to help with this.

The Johnson family are driving to the zoo.

They have driven \frac{5}{9} of their journey, which is 45 miles.

How much further do they have to drive, to reach their holiday home?

Answer: 20 miles left to drive

\frac{5}{9} = 45, therefore \frac{1}{9} = 45 ÷ 9 = 5.

\frac{5}{9} = 5 x 5 = 25 miles

\frac{9}{9} = 9 x 5 = 45 miles

45 – 25 = 20

Answer: 180ml orange juice

\frac{2}{5} of 800: \frac{1}{5} = 160ml, \frac{2}{5} = 320 ml apple juice

\frac{3}{8} of 800: \frac{1}{8} = 100, \frac{3}{8} = 300 ml strawberry juice

800 – 620 = 180ml
