Half Heroes - Halves Recognition Game - was created for lower primary students. The game is designed to help students recognise that halves have two equal parts and to also identify when two parts are not halves of one whole.
Use mathematical modelling to solve practical problems involving equal sharing and grouping; represent the situations with diagrams, physical and virtual materials, and use calculation strategies to solve the problem
Recognise and describe one-half as one of 2 equal parts of a whole and connect halves, quarters and eighths through repeated halving
Identify common uses and represent halves, quarters and eighths in relation to shapes, objects and events
Recognise and describe one-half as one of two equal parts of a whole.
Recognise and interpret common uses of halves, quarters and eighths of shapes and collections
Describes mathematical situations and methods using everyday and some mathematical language, actions, materials, diagrams and symbols
Uses objects, diagrams and technology to explore mathematical problems
Supports conclusions by explaining or demonstrating how answers were obtained
Applies place value, informally, to count, order, read and represent two- and three-digit numbers
Uses a range of mental strategies and concrete materials for multiplication and division
Represents and models halves, quarters and eighths
Uses the structure of equal groups to solve multiplication problems, and shares or groups to solve division problems
