Converting Fractions to Decimals to Percents

The eighth graders are reviewing converting fractions to decimals to percents. They need to create notes to remind them of the process and they need to be prepared to explain how to do this to the 7th graders. Next week the 8th graders will have to teach the 7th graders, then there will be a pair quiz on Tuesday consisting of an 8th grader partnered with a 7th grader. So be prepared!

Here are some YouTube videos to support you:

1. My (MVMS) famous “Decimals to Fractions” YouTube video

2. NASAConnect Percents, Fractions and Decimals video – a fairly basic video; if you really struggle with this concept, you may want to start with this video

3. Fractions to Decimals

Here is a website that I created about fractions. Go to the module that says “Fun Fractions Games and Practice.” The following games will help you practice:

a. Equivalent Fractions Game

b. Quia – Equivalent Fractions Concentration

c. BCC Saloon Snap Fractions, Decimals and Percents Card Game.

Enjoy… and good luck on Tuesday’s quiz.
