We are learning about how fractions, percentages and fractions are related.
We first knew that 0.5 is the same as 1/2.
Then we figured out that 1 whole is written as 1.0 when its a decimal. We know that 100% is one whole.
So then we wrote that 0.5 and 1/2 and 50% are the same.
We used our halves to find out that 1/4, 0.25 and 25% are the same.
We aded three quarters together to get 3/4, and then added 0.25+0.25+0.25 to figure out that 3/4 is the same as 0.75 .
Next Miss Ashley tried to trick us by asking us what 1.50 would be as a fraction.
We knew that 1.0 is 100% and 0.50 is 50% so we added them together and figured out it was 150%.
We drew a picture to help us figure out that 1.50 and 150% would be 3/2 or 1 and a 1/2 if it was a fraction.
Once we understood the place value of how to change between decimals and percentages, we did lots of practice.
We are still learning how to change between percentages, fractions and decimals but we have made a great start!
