For the first session, we will start by establishing the relationship between fractions and decimals. We will build on initial principles and how decimals are written along with their equivalent fractions. With this, we will draw attention to fractions as parts based on the denominators and how decimals relate to multiplying and dividing by powers of 10.

60 mins

It is essential to see how principles can be applied to different fractional and decimal scenarios, to further reinforce learning. We will focus on counting in steps using aid number lines and scales of measure to view concepts in context, exploring the relationship of multiplication and division when dealing with fraction and decimal conversions.

60 mins

Understanding proportions is key when learning about fractions and decimals. In this session, we will look at fractions as a proportion of an amount or quantity. One of the significant demonstrations of proportions is percentages, we will review some of the main equivalences between fractions decimals and percentages, simplifications and conversions.

60 mins

Now we have built confidence with some of the core principles we will spend this session reinforcing ideas relating to the equivalence of decimals and fractions with a denominator of 100 and the relationship this has to percentages. We will work through problem-solving and reasoning examples to consolidate learning in this area.

60 mins

We will further consolidate learning through varied and multi-step practice exercises to encourage chains of reasoning and connection of ideas relating to fractions decimals and percentages, working with ideas of ratio conversions between all formats. In addition to reviewing exam-style questions. Well done for cracking the code!
