I made this task because i thought students would enjoy trying to find a way of fitting the fractions into the table. I initially came up with the tables and had an idea that i would ask students to find fractions that fit, but then I thought they might just add in easy fractions they knew such as 1/3 and 1/2 but in hindsight i don’t think they would have been as quick to find the fractions and it might have been a better challenge for them to try and find the fractions themselves.
I then gave them a range of fractions that needed to be placed in the table, this might work better with some groups.
but i think with a group that relish a challenge i wouldn’t supply the fractions, or maybe you could give the option of trying to find fractions that fit the table and put up the fractions above if they get stuck. Its important that students know they are finding fractions that equal decimals that fill the criteria
