6th Class Maths – Ratio (22.03.19)

on April 5, 2019

This week Mr. Kennedy’s 6th class focused on  a topic called “Ratio” in maths.
In maths Ratio is a way of showing the similarities between quantities of something. We learned how to simplify a Ratio by dividing both parts by the same number. We were given baskets of different items such as lollipop sticks, cubes, counters and cards.
E.G. The ratio of apples: oranges is 4:6.
Divide both numbers by 2.
