# Uncovering Fraction Misconceptions through True and False cards

Having been inspired by some ideas from Resourceaholic and also from Robert Wilne @NCETMsecondary here, I thought I’d create these True or False cards for use with Year 7.  We have covered fraction of an amount, equivalent fractions, adding fractions, and top heavy / mixed numbers so far, but you could easily adapt these if you want to include, for example, multiplying and dividing fractions. I designed the false ones first which really got me thinking about misconceptions that I think could be occurring.  The true ones were relatively straightforward after that.  Enjoy!

Here they are as a Word doc: Fractions True False cards And if the formatting looks a bit weird, as a pdf doc: Fractions True False cards

I like these – and I agree that starting with the wrong ones is very instructive. Should the first one be either shaded area = 4/7 or blank area = 3/7?

1. I’d say it should be 1/2. Could get some discussion going that one, though!
