Your math class will investigate different forms of the same number: fractions, decimals, exponents, percents, and scientific notation. They study the term equivalent and learn how to perform mathematical conversions. Pupils also cover important math definitions that are needed to proceed through the lesson.
In this fractions, decimals, and percents lessons, students explore various methods of representing fractions. They demonstrate situations that represent rational numbers. Students create a foldable exploring fractions, decimals and percents. They use an area model, meter sticks, and base-ten blocks. Students play a game of fraction, decimal, percent bingo.
Students explore number sense by creating a math presentation in class. In this parts of a whole instructional activity, students define and discuss the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages before completing a problem worksheet in class. Students create a tri-fold poster presentation about the topic which they share with the class.
Here is an excellent instructional activity on fractions, decimals, unit rates, proportions, and problem solving. In it, learners engage in six activities in an "investigation center." The activities are based on a fictitious trip to a bakery, and involve several important concepts of rational numbers and proportions. Outstanding blackline masters are embedded in the plan, which will make it easy to successfully implement the instructional activity with your class.
Ninth graders utilize estimation and computation skills to add and subtract fractions, decimals, and percents. They observe the teacher modeling examples of fractions, decimals, percents, exponents, roots, and scientific notation, then independently complete a worksheet.
Here is a terrific series of lessons on the relationships between fractions, decimals, and percents. This incredibly detailed, 28-page plan is jam-packed full of terrific activities and worksheets that will make implementation of the lessons a breeze. This important mathematical relationship is crucial for learners to grasp, and these plans will lead to a much greater understanding for your charges.
Converting between fractions, decimals, and percents can be confusing. Here is an excellent lesson that has small groups moving to five learning stations in order to complete activities around fractions, decimals, and percents. All of the resources needed to implement this fine lesson are embedded in the plan. There is also a strong technology component present.
Mathematicians make representations of fractional parts of a whole and learn that a decimal is another way to represent a fractional part. Understanding is extended by comparing and ordering fractions and decimals on a number line. This high-quality resoucre comes complete with student handouts. Make sure to consider it for addressing Common Core standards in math.
Fifth graders identify and generate equivalent forms of fractions, decimals and percents. In the first part of the lesson, they analyze sets of fractions to generalize how various forms of "one" are used to find equivalent fractions. In part two of the lesson students use models to determine equivalency and to convert and compare among fractions, decimals and percents.
Eighth graders multiply and divide fractions, decimals, percents, and exponents. In addition to working problems in standard notation, 8th graders solve problems by multiplying and dividing numbers in scientific notation. Afterward, students play a "Target Multiplication" game. They complete worksheets containing all types of problems discussed.
Eighth graders review fractions, decimals, percents, powers, and scientific notation. They convert percents to decimals and decimals to percents. They convert fractions to decimals and solve division problems. They convert fractions to percents and create a table of different forms of the same number. They solve word problems with percents and decimals.
Students work in groups to practice making estimations about common fractions, decimals, and percentage equivalents. In this interchange fraction instructional activity, students use algebraic language to represent equivalents. Students work in groups to complete a worksheet about estimation and discuss significant questions.
Fifth graders determine how to convert fractions, decimals, and percents. For this conversion lesson, 5th graders use an on-line applet to practice making these conversions. They review how to make the conversions in a whole class lesson before accessing the "Fraction Four" applet. They work with a partner to play the web site game.
