Fractions and Decimals!

Today we have been finding equivalent fractions and decimals.  We worked collaboratively in groups to match the cards.  Some facts we need to be able to recall as quickly as our multiplication tables for example 3/4 = 0.75.  However others were more tricky and required some calculations.  We used our knowledge of equivalent fractions to find some pairs e.g. 2/5 = 4/10 so it is the same as 0.4.   As you can see we are pleased with our understanding and progress!
