Fractions, decimals and percentages (FDP) are all different formats for representing a part of a whole. We sometimes want to convert between different data formats to make data easier to compare or work with.
Ordering fractions, decimals & percentages can be carried out by converting each number to the same form and comparing place value. Once all of the numbers are in the same form, ordering decimals and ordering percentages can be carried out by simply ordering the numbers. Ordering fractions can be more difficult as they may need to be written in their simplest form or as an equivalent fraction to ensure they all have the same denominator.
Converting from percentages to decimals is carried out by dividing by 100 and conversely, converting from decimals to percentages is carried out by multiplying by 100.
Converting between fractions and decimals is carried out by dividing the numerator and denominator of the fraction to give a decimal. Conversely we can convert a decimal to fraction by multiplying the decimal number by 100 to first give a percentage and then writing the percentage as a fraction over 100.
Converting fractions to percentages can be done by using equivalent fractions to find a fraction with a denominator of 100; the numerator is the percentage. Alternatively we can first convert fractions to decimals by dividing the numerator by the denominator and then multiply the result by 100 to give a percentage.
Once all of the data is in the same form we can compare or order it.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional number worksheets, for example a fractions worksheet or a rounding worksheet.
