Lesson 2: Number sequences (worksheet and answers)

Watch to 6m 12s.

Today we will be learning to count in fractions. Remember, when we are writing a number sequence we have to identify the steps we are counting in (eg. are we counting in steps of 2? 10? 500?) so we will need to identify the steps in terms of fractions. Complete the WRH worksheet above (questions 1-3) then complete Challenge 1 (Q. 1, 2, 3) and Challenge 2 (Q1). If you are feeling confident, why not try Challenge 3 (answers)? The rest of the lesson will continue tomorrow.
