Fractions: Cutting a Cake

Description

A numbers and algebra class can learn how to divide a cake into 12 equal pieces using only four cuts, with this short lesson-starting classroom resource for Key Stage 3 maths.

This light-hearted video shows fractions in a practical setting for secondary pupils.

The most obvious way of dividing the cake would only create eight pieces but, by using a little cunning, presenter Isaac Anoom shows how to make one cake stretch further.
