### Fractions

LI: Fractions decimals and percentages
LI: To understand corresponding fraction, decimals and percentages.

LI: To understand mixed number, improper and equivalent fractions.
This week for maths we had to see how fractions, decimals and percentages link up. We had to do that by using a dlo. We also had to understand mixed number, improper and equivalent fractions alos by using a dlo. The difference between Mixed fraction, improper fraction and mixed number fraction is, Proper fraction is when the numerator is lower than the denominator for example, 4/9 the numerator is lower than the denominator. Improper is when the numerator is higher than the denominator, like 14/4. Mixed number is when the improper fraction like 14/4 it can be called a different way you will need to split it up into 3 wholes 2/4 because there will be 3 wholes and 2/4 left so the answer is 2/4. Fractions have a numerator and a denominator. The numerator is the number of how much it takes up and the denominator is the number of how much it is taking up in. For example ⅔ , the numerator is the top number and the denominator  is the bottom number. The numerator is taking 2 away from the 3 so that is ⅔ . Fractions, Decimals, and percentages all link up by the place value ones, tenths and hundredths.
