# Writing Fractions as Percentages

Students learn how to convert between fractions and percentages using the place value table, factors of 100 equivalent fractions.  More able students are challenged to convert between fractions and percentages using multiples of 100 and multiplying and dividing by a power of ten.The start of the lesson is used to recap factors of 100.  In the development phase students are taught how convert a fraction to a percentage using 100 as the denominator. In the plenary students link this to proportional reasoning with diagrams.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to use the place value table to write a fraction over 100 as a percentage.
• Most students should be able to convert fractions with a denominator as a factor of 100 to a percentage.
• Some students should be able to convert between fractions, mixed numbers and percentages.
