Fractions to Decimals Song

Here’s a Math 7 classic song, “Fractions to Decimals.” Feel free to sing along at home.

The key to changing fractions to decimals is that you need to understand what the decimals mean. For example, 0.9 is 9 tenths, 0.07 is 7 hundredths and  0.103 is one hundred three thousandths. If you’re not solid with this skill, come in and get help.

    This is positively brillant. As a fellow math teacher who is struggling along with this concept, I owe you $1,000,000 for this clever, fun and completely mathematically accurate teaching trick!!!!


    Thank you for sharing all the others.. I follow you through my Bloglines account and think you’re right where so many kids need to be…instructionally speaking.

    I really enjoyed the YouTube Decimals to Fractions production. One of my musical math colleagues shared this site with me. I particularly liked its simplicity. Because of this, I think that it may inspire some others to come up with some ditties of their own (plus it just looked really fun!) I know that I will be sharing the video at workshops. Keep on inspiring!

    yo Ms. Newburn!
    Great singing! I was a little sketchy on the concept of decimals to fractions, but now I am up to date! One complaint though… I couldn’t fall asleep for a long time because the song was stuck in my head!
