Aimed at challenging and refreshing KS4 students on the essential skill of FDP conversions, this worksheet offers learners the chance to convert fluently between decimals and percentages, use knowledge of equivalent fractions to convert fractions to percentages and use division to convert fractions to decimals.
It is split into four different conversion tables. The first asks students to convert between decimals and percentages, including decimals, to 3 decimal places by using their understanding of the equivalence between the two. The following table lists fractions with denominators that are factors or multiples of 100, enabling students to use their knowledge of equivalent fractions to convert between fractions and percentages.
In table 3, your learners will convert between fractions and decimals using the skill mentioned above or by understanding fractions as division and subsequently carrying out the division to reach a terminating decimal equivalent. Finally, table 4 is about fractions equivalent to recurring decimals. Here students may use knowledge such as 0.72 (recurring) = 72⁄99 or an algebraic method.
