Because I can’t be with my students all the time whispering hints and answers as they complete their homework, I need a foldable activity showing exactly how I want my students to convert all of these numbers from one form to another. And here it is!
Introducing the Converting Fractions, Decimals, and Percents Foldable Reference!
I like that it’s easy to understand, and we don’t need to spend much valuable class time making it. After all, we only have 50 minutes.
The most difficult part for students was making sure the outside labels were on the correct tabs. One student had two of his labels switched, which of course caused trouble until we were able to switch them to the correct tab. Make sure students pay close attention to that detail!
The best feature about this foldable reference is that students learn to rely on themselves to solve their problems, which promotes independence. This foldable reference has made such a difference for my students.
