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.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]
