# Maths KS2: Decimal Dance Off 1

**In this clip we look at the structure of fractions, decimals and percentages and how they are different ways of representing quantities or proportions.**

We see how a fraction is composed, the meaning of “percentage” as an amount “out of 100”, and place values in a decimal.

We also see a connection between fractions, decimals and percentages.

The end sketch looks at the “giving 110%” platitude often associated with sport commentary and analyses why it is incorrect.

This clip is from the series Kick Sum Maths.

*Teacher Notes*

*This clip could be used to consolidate the meaning of fractions. It can also be used to illustrate the meaning of percentage and place value for decimals.*

*The end sketch could stimulate discussion of when more than 100% makes sense and when it doesn't. Clearly, this clip also leads on to Decimal Dance Off 2.*

*Curriculum Notes*

*These clips could be used for teaching Maths at KS2 or at a beginner level in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 1st and 2nd Level in Scotland.*
