Mathematics Year 1: (1F1b) Recognise, find and name a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or quantity

Mathematics Year 1: (1M1) Compare, describe and solve practical problems for mass/weight [for example, heavy/light, heavier than, lighter than, half, quarter]

Mathematics Year 2: (2F1a) Recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/3 , 1/4 , 2/4 and 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity

**Differentiation for Year 1 Find a Quarter of a Shape or Object:**

**Varied Fluency**

**Developing **Questions to support showing, finding, drawing and identifying quarters of objects and shapes. All items symmetrical and quartered by vertical and horizontal lines.

**Expected **Questions to support showing, finding, drawing and identifying quarters of objects and shapes. All items symmetrical but more options for quartering available.

**Greater Depth **Questions to support showing, finding, drawing and identifying quarters of objects and shapes. Items may be asymmetrical and can be quartered by vertical, horizontal or diagonal lines. More possibilities for quartering shapes are explored.

**Reasoning and Problem Solving**

**Questions 1, 4 and 7 (Problem Solving)**

**Developing **Sort shapes into a table showing if they are correctly divided into quarters or not. Shapes are regular and dividing lines are vertical or horizontal.

**Expected **Sort shapes into a table showing if they are correctly divided into quarters or not. Shapes are sometimes irregular.

**Greater Depth **Sort shapes into a table showing if they are correctly divided into quarters or not. Shapes are sometimes irregular and lines are in varying directions.

**Questions 2, 5 and 8 (Problem Solving)**

**Developing **Shade a quarter, more than a quarter or less than a quarter of 2 simple shapes to match given labels.

**Expected **Shade a quarter, more than a quarter or less than a quarter of 2 shapes to match given labels.

**Greater Depth **Shade a quarter, more than a quarter or less than a quarter of 3 complex shapes to match given labels.

**Questions 3, 6 and 9 (Reasoning)**

**Developing **Decide if a statement about a shape being quartered is correct. Explain your reasoning. Regular polygons only.

**Expected **Decide if a statement about a shape being quartered is correct. Explain your reasoning. Irregular shape used and more than one way of making quarters.

**Greater Depth **Decide if a statement about a shape being quartered is correct. Explain your reasoning. Questions have multiple steps to work out.

**Differentiation for Year 2 Recognise a Quarter:**

**Varied Fluency**

**Developing **Questions to support recognising a quarter of objects and shapes (including circles and squares), using a vertical and horizontal line and beginning to use the fraction 1/4.

**Expected **Questions to support recognising a quarter of lengths, groups of objects and shapes (including circles, triangles and quadrilaterals) when the quarter is shown using diagonal, horizontal or vertical lines; using the fraction 1/4.

**Greater Depth **Questions to support recognising a quarter in lengths, mixed objects and shapes (including circles, triangles, quadrilaterals and polygons) when the half is shown using a mixture of lines; using the fraction 1/4.

**Reasoning and Problem Solving**

**Questions 1, 4 and 7 (Reasoning)**

**Developing **Explain which shape (using circles and squares) has one quarter shaded.

**Expected **Explain which shape (using circles, triangles and quadrilaterals) has one quarter shaded.

**Greater Depth **Explain which shape (using circles and polygons) does not have one quarter shaded.

**Questions 2, 5 and 8 (Problem Solving)**

**Developing **Shade parts of a given shape to show different ways to represent one quarter. Using circles and squares divided into 4 equal parts.

**Expected **Shade parts of a given shape to show different ways to represent one quarter. Using triangles and quadrilaterals divided into 4 equal parts.

**Greater Depth **Shade parts of a given shape to show different ways to represent one quarter. Using polygons divided into 4 equal parts.

**Questions 3, 6 and 9 (Reasoning)**

**Developing **Explain which is the odd one out (using circles, squares and groups of objects).

**Expected **Explain which is the odd one out (using circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, groups of objects and fractions).

**Greater Depth **Explain which is the odd one out (using circles, polygons, groups of objects and fractions).
