Did you spot the ‘TechFail’ moment in Blocky’s movie? Stormie sad the answer was 1/4. What do you think the question might be? In your comment, tell us as many possible questions as you can think of.

I listened to the clip and these are all my answers for this blog.

1. a pizza cut it in half and cut that half in half again and you get _______?

2. 15 minutes are also know as _______of an hour?

Is the answer is 1 quarter‼️

Akinshola, I am not sure why you are saying this. In The 1/4 Quiz Show, the answer is always this.

I really love the one about the minutes and hour, Josh.

The first Question is what’s less than half

A Quarter.

That could have been a 8th or a 16th or even decimals😺

Nice thinking, Akinshola.

Yes that’s what I ment

Great question, Marcus. This will help people understand the relative size of 1/4.

Maybe the question was: what is half of a half? Or another one is: what is 1 fourth of a whole? What’s the probability that I choose a blue marble from a bag with two red marbles, one yellow marble and one blue marble?

Is the answer is 1 quarter‼️

Akinshola, I am not sure why you are saying this.

Excellent questions, Austin. I might use the ‘marble’ idea in a new maths activity next week.

At 00:40 around that time half way was the techfail!

One of my answers is what is half of a half?

If I cut a pizza in four pieces what would one piece be called?

What would two 1/8 be called ?

Nice ideas here, Asha. My favourite is definitely the 1/8. I have been imagining what this might look like.

The answer is 1 quarter‼️

Ii like these questions Asha I think they are very useful for something

Hi Ms Lockyer

i spotted your tec fail i think one of the questions Blocky could say is what is a quarter of one hour? A ;15 mins

no.2 if you had a pizza with 24 pieces what is the quarter.

A; 6 pieces ( 6×4=24

no.3 if you had 20 popsticks what is the quarter?

A; 5 ( 5 x 4= 20)

are you going to make another BLOCKYS QUIZ SHOW? are you going to put in your favourite answer from the comments and put it in your new show?

Ah Zoey that’s most likely going to happen 😆.

Would you lile to help me with the new Quiz Show? I am not sure if we should make a new movie or a ‘Listen To reading’ recording. What do you think?

i think we could have a group help and make a new movie in daily 5 and put on listen to reading and i could help take charge.

You should.

I really like these clues Zoey. yes I would like to make a new ‘Blocky’s Quiz Show’ but I am running out of time this week. I wonder if anyone could do it for me?

i could help with a few others?

If 4 people shares 1 whole and they each got how much would they get?

what’s half of half?

If three people have 1/4 each how much is left?

These are excellent clues. I really had to think hard about them.

one of these questions might be the first question that blocky asked space trooper but all of these could be wrong if you have a orange and you cut it in half then you cut the halfs in half what fraction is each peace ‘ one carrot four people cut four qurters how meany quarters does each person have

Nice clues Emily – easy to visualise.

I think the questions could be If you had to share a cake between 4 people how much would each of them get?

or

if you have three quarters and you take away a half what do you have left?

Nice clues Ethan. Can you think of any to do with measurement?

I think the question could be:

one piece of chocolate cake shared equally among 4 people. How much would each person get?

This is a good clue – thanks Hannah.

I like your answer Hannah because if our family had a cake we would have to divide it in quarters because my brother wants the most.

The first question is

Find a quarter of this recipe

We need;

4g of flour,

28 Teaspoons of sugar,

4g of water,

4g of butter,

And 40 choco flakes,

This and down doesn’t matter at all only if you want to make this recipe,with no longer you have to wait let’s go!

Stir for 5 mins until moist,

Then pour in any moulds leave in fridge for 3 mins and.Mmm so yum

This was fabulous! I am not sure what choco flakes are though. Did you get to make the recipe?

Hi Ms Lockyer,

Oh could 2L make this like a experiment,and no I got it straight out of my head😌 😌 ‼️

yes Akinshola I would want to make this as a experiment MAD Hour project or for the s word Science

i like it is this how to make a sort of cake?

1g of flour,

7 teaspoons of sugar,

1g of water,

1g of butter,

And 10 choco flakes.😺😺😺

ok cool I will try making it this week

If you have a building in minecraft and you split it into four pieces then each piece = ___________

If you had a cake and cut it into 8 pieces and eat 2 pieces, how much of the cake have you eaten?

Nice thinking Amelia I like the option on mine craft ,could you make a movie on puppet pals or explain everything?

The question could be what is half of a half.

The first period of a game of football is called a ______?

I really like the football one – thanks Evan!

If an apple is shared by a family of 4 equally, how much does each person get?

If you have 2 people and you had 4 slices of pizza.

One slice equals one quarter.

This is really interesting Jasmine. How big are these slices? What shape are they? Does it matter how many people there are?

How wide will each pizza be?

If two kids shared half a pizza equally how much would each kid get?

Nice answer Callum – easy for me to make a picture in my head of this one.

If a family of4 share an apple equally,how much will each person get?

I think this is actually really funny but it also gives a good message about checking thing before publishing them

One of the questions could of been: if Bob ate 3/4 of a cake how much cake would be left?

I think question 1 is ” Three quarters + ______ = 1 whole.

1. I had part of a bar of soap. After one week, I had used half of what I had. At the end of the second week, I found out that I had used 1/8 of a bar of soap and that the soap had been used all up. How much soap did I originally have?

2. I invited 11 children do a party. We shared 3 pizzas equally. How much pizza did each child get?

It could be 1/2 take 1/2 (1/2 of a 1/4).

Q. If Chelsea Smith had one pie, she ate half of it and then gave half of the remaining pie to Mia, how much does she have left?

A. 1/4 of the pie is left.

Q. If Eleanor had a cake, she cut it into eighths and then she ate 6 of the pieces, how much cake does she have left?

A. 2 pieces (1/4 of 8)

Those are just two examples of some word problems that could be the question to the answer of 1/4.
