Number and Number Sense
Focus: Relationships among Fractions, Decimals, and Percents

The student will
a)   investigate and describe fractions, decimals, and percents as ratios; and
b)   identify a given fraction, decimal, or percent from a representation. 
Essential Knowledge and Skills
  • Identify the decimal and percent equivalents for  numbers written in fraction form including repeating decimals.
  • Represent fractions, decimals, and percents on a number line.
  • Describe orally and in writing the equivalent relationships among decimals, percents, and fractions that have denominators that are factors of 100.
  • Represent, by shading a grid, a fraction, decimal, and percent.
  • Represent in fraction, decimal, and percent form a given shaded region of a grid.
Essential Understandings
  • What is the relationship among fractions, decimals and percents? Fractions, decimals, and percents are three different ways to express the same number.  A ratio can be written using fraction form (2/3), a colon (2:3), or the word to (2 to 3).  Any number that can be written as a fraction can be expressed as a terminating or repeating decimal or a percent.

  1. Part:Part and Part:Whole Ratios: Compare a ratio represented by an area with its percent, fraction, and decimal forms.
  2. Percents and Proportions: Find a part from the percent and whole, a percent from the part and whole, or a whole from the part and percent using a graphic model.
  3. Polling: Neighborhood: Conduct a phone poll of citizens in a small neighborhood to determine their response to a yes-or-no question. Use the results to estimate the sentiment of the entire population. Investigate how the error of this estimate becomes smaller as more people are polled. Compare random versus non-random sampling.
  4. Ordering Percents, Fractions and Decimals: Compare and order numbers represented as percents, fractions, and decimals using area grids and a number line.
  5. Ordering Percents, Fractions and Decimals Greater Than 1: Compare and order numbers greater than 1 using area grids and a number line. Examine the numbers represented as percents, improper fractions, and decimals.
