Apple Maths Activity 1

Apple fractions

  • Work in pairs. You will need a piece of drawing paper, a Bramley apple and a knife (get an adult to supervise use of this).
  • Think about how many different ways you can cut up an apple so that all pieces are of equal size and shape.
  • Start by drawing all of the different ways that you can think of before choosing one way and actually cutting your apple.
  • Come back together as a class and compare all of your apple slices.
  • Draw each combination on the board and list the fractions that these represent.
