              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.
