Our Decimal and Fraction Conversion lesson plan introduces students to a real world skill they will need throughout their lives – decimal and fraction conversion. Converting fractions to decimals and converting decimals to fractions are both covered in the lesson. Students are asked to complete an interactive activity where they count different colored pasta and create both fractions and decimals to show what proportion of the total amount of pasta is each color. Students are also asked to complete conversion problems on their own.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to convert from decimals to fractions and fractions to decimals.
