Students using the Pikelet cutter learning object

The Pikelet cutter learning object supports students from Early Stage 1 to Stage 4 to develop a conceptual understanding of fractions by partitioning pikelets into pieces.  The lesson plans incorporating the Pikelet cutter can be used across all stages of learning by varying the level and types of questions and tasks.  The lessons are designed to assist teachers in rural areas and central schools working with multi-staged classes.

The lessons provide computer tasks as well as supporting off-computer tasks. Students can use sharing diagrams to show their thinking when they are not using the Pikelet cutter.
