# Fractions and Decimal Numbers

Students learn how to convert between fractions and decimal numbers using place value and equivalent fractions.  As learning progresses mixed numbers are introduced.

At the start of the lesson students recap comparing the size of fractions with different denominators and decimal numbers.  In the development phase they learn how to use equivalent fractions and the place value table to convert between fractions and decimal numbers.  At the end of the lesson students apply their learning to find the perimeter of a composite shape.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to use the place value table to convert between a decimal and fraction over 10 or 100.
• Most students should be able to convert between fractions and decimals using the place value table.
• Some students should be able to convert between fractions and mixed numbers and decimals using written methods.

#### Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

#### Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]

#### Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences

Students learn how to generate and describe arithmetic and geometric sequences on a  position-to-term basis.  Learning progresses from plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant to describing geometric sequences using the nth term. This unit takes place in Term 4 of Year 10 and is followed by the equations of straight line graphs. Arithmetic […]
