Fractions decimals and percents

February 12, 2020

In 1L today we worked on ordering decimals, fractions and percents. We had good learning moments when we connected the number in front of the decimal with the whole number in the fraction, and when we examined the number in the denominator and connected it with the size of piece we’d have. 1/2 of a cookie is bigger than 1/10 of a cookie. When the denominator is big, the piece is smaller.

We represented decimals in a concept circle today also. Today our “one” in the center was a 10 block, and then we built the other values accordingly. We are getting more comfortable with these materials and this skill.
