If a child is really confused about decimals, converting decimal numnbers into money is a great way to make things clearer. For example: a child may be asked to say how much bigger 1.3 is than 0.9. If they convert these decimals into money (£1.30 and 90p) they may find that they can do this calculation very quickly in their head, getting the answer 40p which they convert back into the decimal, 0.4. Demonstrating that money maths depends on decimal understanding is also an easy way to prove that decimals are actually useful in real life!
Never underestimate how much a visual representation of what can otherwise appear to be an abstract concept can help children learn.
Here’s hoping that now simplifying fractions for you would be easy and not so ‘trick-y’. Happy Fractions!
If the answers numerator is greater than the denominator, then the answer is an improper fraction. This fraction should be turned into a proper fraction by taking wholes out of the numerator until the numerator is less than the denominator.
