Some simple functions (gcd, simplification, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) for working with fractions in BYOB Snap!

Each fraction is represented as a list numerator, denominator, which could be used as an example of a data structure at KS3.

I think this could be useful to link with KS2 maths.

The gcd function uses Euclid’s algorithm and recursion, so might be useful for illustrating these too.
