In this diagnostic activity worksheet, 5th graders find equivalencies for fractions, decimals, and percents. They fill in tables, draw models, and leave questions for the teacher. They complete a second worksheet in which they write fractions as percents after reading the directions. They complete a matching activity and answer two word problems.
If your fifth graders have mastered fractions, push them to the next level! They multiply fractions by whole numbers and decimals (in the form of money math). The worksheet provides space for pupils to write out their work, based on two examples at the top of the page. A great quiz or group activity!
Introduce decimals to your fourth grade class with a worksheet that provides four number lines for them to complete. A list of decimals have already been plotted on the number lines; learners only need to label each point. This is a great way to scaffold learning for additional lessons on decimals and number lines.
Create your own fraction kits by folding and labeling paper using fraction vocabulary. Learners then work in groups to use these in comparing and sequencing both whole numbers and fractions. They also create unit cubes and develop an understanding that one unit cube is equivalent to a fractional amount.
Learners practice converting fractions, decimals, and percentages to communicate equal amounts. They fill in a table, determine the percentage of a total area that is shaded in diagrams, complete equations with decimals to the hundredths place, order decimals and fractions, and complete four story problems. Links to online drills for conversions like the ones practiced in this exercise are included.
Learners examine the definition of irrational numbers as a non-terminating number that does not end when written as a decimal. They examine how these numbers are converted to percentages, decimals, fractions and to scientific notation. Finally, they complete an independent student practice sheet.
Voila! Young mathematicians become magicians as they turn fractions into decimals and decimals into fractions. They reference examples before completing 37 transformations on their own. The first 16 are fractions with a denominator of 10, and scholars write the equivalent decimal for each. The next 16 are decimals to the tenths place to be converted to fractions. There are five analysis questions to further solidify these concepts (i.e. "Which two of the fractions above are the same as 0.4?").
