Today we will be extending our learning about fractions as decimals! Remember you can convert fractions to decimals AND decimals back into fractions.
We will be working on different tasks each day to consolidate ‘tenths’ ‘hundredths’ and ‘thousandths’ place value! Practice makes perfect!
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).
Bronze: Identify the fraction within the bar model and then convert it into a decimal
Silver: Match the decimal numbers to their equivalent fractions. Remember if you are not sure, put the decimal into a place value chart and see if it falls into ‘tenths’ ‘hundredths’ ‘thousandths’
