Bits of Pizza (Bizza Pizza)
Equivalent Fractions are explained with one visual image and a snip of the scissors.
- Three Pizzas display 16 olives.
- One is divided into sixteenths with eighths on the reverse.
- A second shows an eighth again, but has quarters on the reverse. The last in the set shows quarters with halves on the reverse.
- The olives explain half, quarter, eighth and sixteenth of 16.
- Two pizzas show 12 olives with twelfths on the reverse side of sixths, and again sixths on the reverse of thirds.
- The last pizza shows ten olives and thus tenths with fifths on the reverse.
- Cut and flip on piece over to see the equivalent fraction. Write on and wipe off any fraction number, or use indelible pens to highlight a fixed fraction.
- Two tiny extra pizzas per set act as pizza counters.
The Class set includes 24 Pizzas (13.5cm diam) and 8 pizza counters (6.5cm diam) – 3 sets of each pizza and photocopiable masters.
