#### National Curriculum Objectives

Mathematics Year 5: (5F3) Compare and order fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number

Mathematics Year 6: (6F2) Use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination
Mathematics Year 6: (6F3) Compare and order fractions, including fractions > 1

Differentiation for Year 5 Compare and order fractions less than 1:

Varied Fluency
Developing Questions to support comparing and ordering fractions less than 1 where the denominator is double or half of the starting fraction. Models and pictorial representations used.
Expected Questions to support comparing and ordering fractions less than 1 whose denominators are all multiples of the same number or some common numerators. Models and pictorial representations used.
Greater Depth Questions to support comparing and ordering fractions less than 1 whose denominators have a common factor or some common numerators. Some models and pictorial representations used.

Reasoning and Problem Solving
Questions 1, 4 and 7 (Reasoning)
Developing Explain whether a statement is correct when comparing two fractions less than 1 where the denominator is double or half of the starting fraction. Draw a diagram to check.
Expected Explain whether a statement is correct when comparing two fractions less than 1 whose denominators are all multiples of the same number or have common numerators. Draw a diagram to check.
Greater Depth Explain whether a statement is correct when comparing two fractions less than 1 whose denominators are not direct multiples but have a common factor or have common numerators. Draw a diagram to check.

Questions 2, 5 and 8 (Problem Solving)
Developing Use digit cards to complete a more/less than statement comparing fractions less than 1 where the missing denominator is the same, double or half of the starting fractions.
Expected Use digit cards to complete a more/less than statement comparing fractions less than 1 where the missing denominators are all multiples of the denominator of the starting fraction.
Greater Depth Use digit cards to complete a more/less than statement comparing fractions less than 1 where the missing denominators are not direct multiples but have a common factor with the denominator of the starting fraction.

Questions 3, 6 and 9 (Reasoning)
Developing Find the mistake when ordering fractions less than 1 where the denominator is double or half of the starting fraction.
Expected Find the mistake when ordering fractions less than 1 whose denominators are all multiples of the same number.
Greater Depth Find the mistake when ordering fractions less than 1 whose denominators are not direct multiples but have a common factor.

Differentiation for Year 6 Compare and order (denominator):
Varied Fluency
Developing Questions to support comparing and ordering unit fractions where denominators are direct multiples of the same number (for example 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and the common denominator is 8).
Expected Questions to support comparing and ordering fractions where denominators are not always direct multiples of the same number (for example 1/2, 1/5, 1/10 and the common denominator is 10).
Greater Depth Questions to support comparing and ordering fractions where denominators are not always direct multiples of the same number (for example 1/3, 1/4, 1/6, 1/8 and the common denominator is 24).

Reasoning and Problem Solving
Questions 1, 4 and 7 (Problem Solving)
Developing Find possible answers within parameters (where denominators are direct multiples of the same number).
Expected Find possible answers within parameters (where denominators are not always direct multiples of the same number).
Greater Depth Find possible answers within parameters (where denominators are not direct multiples of the same number).

Questions 2, 5 and 8 (Reasoning)
Developing Compare three fractions where denominators are direct multiples of the same number.
Expected Compare three fractions where denominators are not always direct multiples of the same number.
Greater Depth Compare three fractions where denominators are not direct multiples of the same number.

Questions 3, 6 and 9 (Reasoning)
Developing Solve a word problem by comparing three fractions where denominators are direct multiples of the same number.
Expected Solve a word problem by comparing three fractions where denominators are not always direct multiples of the same number.
Greater Depth Solve a word problem by comparing three fractions where denominators are not direct multiples of the same number.
