#### Transcript of Year 2 - Fractions in Real Life

"But Mrs Taylor, why do we need to learn about fractions?" "Becasue we use fractions in our lives everyday...
lets have a look" Fractions! MONEY What if little Johnny, Peter and Todd want
to share a bowl of fries from the takeaway? HOW DO THEY WORK OUT THE BILL? If the fries were \$3.00 and each boy ate one equal third (or 1/3) of the fries... One third (or 1/3) of \$3.00 is \$1.00.
The three boys pay \$1.00 each, which equals \$3.00 Easy peasy right? Lets move on... Food It's Jill's Birthday and she has 3 friends she'd like to share her birthday cake with. Where do fractions come into it? Jill has one (whole) cake. She needs to cut the cake into 4 equal slices for her and her three friends. The cake is cut into quarters (1/4), like this... each friend gets one quarter (1/4)
and four quarters makes a whole (cake) 1 1 1 1 What's next? TIME Jess wakes up at 7am in the morning
and goes to sleep at 7pm at night. In a day there are 24 hours. Jess sleeps for half (1/2) of them.
(12 hours asleep, 12 hours awake). Jess is awake for 12 hours. What does Jess do with her time? Jess spends 6 hours at school and 6 hours at home. Which means that Jess spends a quarter (1/4) of her whole day at school and a quarter (1/4) of her whole day at home. All together now...

In a whole day (24 hours), this is how Jess spends her time: Sleeps - 12 hours - Half (1/2) a day
home - 6 hours - Quarter (1/4) a day
School - 6 hours - quarter (1/4) a day
-------------
Total 24 hours 1 whole day Now you're getting it!
