Color Tenths as Decimals and Percents
The worksheet is a math exercise designed to help students practice converting fractions into decimals and percentages. It presents a column of fractions, all with a denominator of 10, which simplifies the conversion process. For each fraction provided, students are expected to fill in two additional columns, one with the decimal equivalent and the other with the percentage equivalent. The worksheet includes a completed example to guide students in the conversion process.
This worksheet teaches students the skills of converting between different representations of numerical values-specifically fractions, decimals, and percentages. Since the fractions have a denominator of 10, the conversions to decimals and percentages are straightforward, reinforcing the understanding that the tenths place in a decimal corresponds to the percentage directly. Through this exercise, students can enhance their fluency in moving between these different forms, a critical component of mathematical literacy. Additionally, the worksheet reinforces the relationship between these forms, which is fundamental to various applications in mathematics, finance, and data interpretation.
