Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be changing quantities into fractions, following a few simple rules.


What is 5 minutes as a fraction of one hour?


a watch

First, we need to make the units the same. 


We need to work out how many minutes there are in 1 hour.

There are 60 minutes in one hour.


As a fraction, we would write this as: 5/60


Let's try another. 


Write 12 metres as a fraction of 1 km.

Again, first, we need to make sure the units are the same.

There are 1,000 m in 1 km.
