Our Learning Today
Lo: to publish
Today I want you to log on to Purple Mash. I have set you a 2do. It is called Baboon narrative. I would like you to type up your narrative and publish it. You can add small images to the pages and change the sub headings for your chapters. Please do not forget to hand it in. I cannot wait to read them all :)
Lo: to convert between fractions, decimals and percentages
Let's start off with some CLIC questions:
97,315,638 + 14,573,983
43,620,021 - 29,836,541
283 x 216
8731 ÷ 75
Let's quickly recap what we learnt yesterday. We were converting fractions into percentages. We know that we need a fraction with 100 as the denominator to find the percent. This is because percent means out of 100. When we have converted a fraction we use the numerator as our percent.
Is this correct? How can we check?
I know that 20 x 5 = 100
We need need to do the same to the numerator. 12 x 5 = 60
60/100 is the same as 60%
If you can convert fractions to percentages, then you will now be able to convert between fractions. decimals and percentages. All three are related and it is easy to convert between them using the strategies we have learnt. Have a look at this simple table with some examples.
Let's try this one together.
In this example we have a decimal. We know that 0.3 is a tenth. This means the fraction is 3/10. We need to convert this to have a denominator of 100 so that we can find our percent.
10 x 10 = 100 and 3 x 10 = 30
So that means that 3/10 is the same as 30/100.
I know 30/100 is the same as 30% because the fraction has 100 as the denominator so we can use the numerator as the percent.
Ok it's your turn. Use your strategies to convert between decimals, fractions and percentages. Draw this table out in your books and fill the missing spaces.
Here are your challenges. You do not need to do them all.
