Together We Achieve

Investigation with Fractions, Division and Decimals

Yesterday Badgers Class completed an investigation looking at the relationship between fractions, division and decimals.  After defining these terms, we used calculators to explore the relationship between them: for example  ½ is 1 divided into 2 equal parts, and when you type 1÷2 into the calculator the answer was 0.5.  After solving a few together, the children were so excited to use the calculators to convert other fractions into decimals.
