Students compare and order numbers in all three forms using their knowledge of fractions, decimals and percentage equivalence.
In section A, students are faced with 6 pairs of numbers and asked to find the largest. Learners will have to consider equivalence in various forms to answer.
From this, learners have 3 sets of 4 fractions, decimals and percentages to put into ascending order. Section B starts with an example which suggests that students first convert all numbers into percentages before ordering them in their original form. This avoids confusion in ordering decimals or fractions with different denominators.
Section C asks students to find two numbers between 1% and 4% as a fraction and a decimal and finally between 4⁄10 and 1⁄2 as a decimal and a percentage. Only 1 example answer is given for each; a great conversation starter between student and teacher or between peers.
