Year 4 Cuisenaire rod exploration

Before beginning our Fractions unit for Year 4 we have been exploring the relationships between different Cuisenaire rods. It was really interesting to hear lots of the Maths talk around the room ‘This one is equal to two of the green rods.’. ‘I notice they all equal the same amount when you put them together.’

This was really useful to get children thinking about fractions as equal units and the concept of wholes of different sizes.
