A mind map and group discussion lead to real-world connections to fractions, decimals, and percents.
These resources are part of KET's Math Instructional Strategies: Number Operations collection.
For many adult students, fractions, decimals, and percents can be difficult to understand. Often, students will state that they can "do" one or two of these representations, but that they are no good at the others. One possible remedy to the common misconception that fractions, decimals, and percents are more different than alike is to introduce the relationships first, then work with the skills and other concepts necessary for mastery.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
