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.

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]
