Description

This video is going to make you hungry as all I talk about it pizza .. and fractions! Starting with the idea of pizza, I look at what equivalent fractions are. I then look at how we can simplify fractions (to get it to the simplest form) and how we can reverse the process to make lots and lots of equivalent fractions. There are a number of worked examples and I make sure to explain the theory in a way you will understand. And, we will ignore the fact that Aussies seem to put an egg on top of one of your pizzas!
