Are they both ok? 'Half (of) the class won't come if we have the meeting today.' Thanks

Hi Helen, Yes, both are okay in spoken English, but in written English, it's best to include the "of." 希望我帮了你。还有问题请别怕问。

Thanks. But I thought the order is acceptable?

And 'of' is definitely not necessary, whether written or spoken

No not really - the order is wrong. If we have the meeting today, half the class won't come. The way you write it stresses the wrong thing.
