Today we will be extending our learning about fractions as decimals! What you need to know is that you can convert fractions to decimals AND decimals back into fractions.
As you can see below in the place value chart, if your decimal has a digit in the ‘tenths’ column the fraction will be /10. (Random Example: 0.4 as a fraction will be 4/10 because the digit ‘4’ is in the tenths column).
If your decimal has a digit in the ‘hundredths’ column the fraction will be /100. (Random Example: 0.03 as a fraction will be 3/100 because the digit ‘3’ would appear in the hundredths column).
Finally, if your decimal has a digit in the ‘thousandths’ column the fraction will be /1000. (Random Example: 0.006 as a fraction would be 6/1000 because the digit ‘6’ would appear in the thousandths column).
Watch the video below, which will help to explain the above further.
Now, watch the home learning video and after, scroll down and answer the questions!

(For question 1, state how many squares you will need to colour in: e.g. “For 5/100 I will need to shade in 5 squares to show 0.05”)
