# There are 366 different Starters of The Day, many to choose from. You will find below some starters on the topic of Fractions. A lesson starter does not have to be on the same topic as the main part of the lesson or the topic of the previous lesson. It is often very useful to revise or explore other concepts by using a starter based on a totally different area of Mathematics.

### Fractions Starters: A puzzle about the number of coins on a table given information about fractions of them. Can you see what fractions of the shapes have been shaded? It is not as difficult as it first appears. Arrange the fractions and decimals in order from smallest to largest. Convert fractions to decimals, decimals to percentages and percentages to fractions. The height of this giraffe is three and a half metres plus half of its height. How tall is the giraffe? Find the number which when added to the top (numerator) and bottom (denominator) of each fraction make it equivalent to one half. Five problems with a Halloween theme. Find fractions between two given values. Match the fractions to their decimal equivalents and join them with lines that do not cross. Investigate three fractions which add together to give one fifth. Investigate three fractions which add together to give one ninth. Use your calculator to find which whole number divided by another whole number gives a recurring decimal. It is called Refreshing Revision because every time you refresh the page you get different revision questions. Make a poster showing a variety of calculations that give the answer two thirds.
