Fractions, Decimals and Percents Mini-course

Session Eight

Connecting Fractions, Decimals, and Percents

Objectives

• To celebrate the accomplishments and learning of the participants in this class.

• To use the number strips and Cuisenaire Rods as manipulatives for illustrating percent concepts.

• To reinforce the relationship between fractions, decimals, and percents.

• To introduce participants to the NCTM Connections Standard.

Session Overview

• 20-30 Min Top Ten Tips for Parents and Bringing Mathematics Home 7.

• 3-5 Min NCTM Connections Standard.

• 30- 40 Min Percent Number Strip Activity

• 20 – 25 Min Reflection on Session One Goals

• 15 – 20 Min Graduation

Top Ten Tips for Parents

• Parents are to group themselves according to the top ten tip that they focused on during the week. e.g. Parents who focused on tip #1 should form a group.

• Each group should chart what they did or plan to do to implement this tip.

• Each group to post their chart and share their ideas.

Homework Review

• Participants to share their solutions to the homework Percent Problems

NCTM Connections Standard

• Instructional programs from pre – k through to grade 12 should enable students to:

• Recognize and use connections among mathematical ideas and how mathematical ideas connect and build on one another to produce a coherent whole.

Relating Fractions and Decimals to Percents

• Cut out the Percent Strip and label it.• Tape the Percent Strip in line with the

fraction and decimal strips on the same sheet from Session 6.

• Now consider how the display of number strips shows connections between mathematical ideas.

• Answer the questions on the next slide in groups.

Discussion Questions

• Which strips are most closely related? Why?

• How could these strips help you change a decimal into a percent or a percent into a decimal?

• How could these strips be used to help you change a fraction into a percent or a percent into a fraction?

Percent Relationships

• This activity will use make use of cuisenaire rods to illustrate percent relationships.

• If Orange is 100% then red =……%

• If Brown is 100% then………….= 70 %

• Complete the rest of BLM 49 in your groups.

Closing Activity – Looking Back

• I learned mathematics

• I interacted with my children
