Fabulous Fractions, Delightful Decimals & Perfect Percentages

This week we have been learning about common fractions, decimal fractions and percentages.

When we were exploring fractions we discovered equivalent fractions.  They are fractions that have the same value but different numerators and denominators.  For example, one half is the same as two quarters.
