Recurring Decimals

Students learn the difference between terminating and recurring decimals and how to convert a recurring decimal to a simplified fraction using algebra.  As learning progresses they consider dividing fractions by tens and hundreds to convert more complex decimals.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to convert a decimal that recurs in the tenths column to a simplified fraction.
  • Most students should be able to convert a decimal that recurs in the tenths or hundredths column to a simplified fraction.
  • Some students should be able to convert any recurring decimal to a fraction in its simplified form.
