Essential Questions: What are fractions, decimals and percents? How do I order fractions, decimals and percents?

Review time! Think about what we’ve learned this week... What is the strategy you will use most for comparing and ordering fractions, decimals and percents? NIDO!

Remember... The key to comparing: You need to remember to change all fractions and percents to DECIMALS. After you have converted them to DECIMALS, you will have no problem ordering them :) DECIMALS!

Let’s review the steps... Convert all fractions into decimals using NIDO! Line up the decimals! Even the playing field by plugging in place holding zeros. Compare the numbers from left to right! Put back in original form... Order from LEAST to GREATEST 0.35, 0.3, 2/5, 0.45, 0.5 0.5 0.45 0.4 0.3 0.35 0 0 0 2525 5 = 2.0 -20 o 0.4 2.0

If you can do all of that... Then you can order decimals ! 0.3, 0.35, 2/5, 0.45, 0.5
