Maths KS2: Decimal Dance Off 2
In this clip we show that percentages are amounts out of 100, which may simplify to an equivalent fraction.
Division by 100 is used to convert percentages to decimals. Equivalent fractions and place value denominators are used to convert between decimals and fractions.
The concept of a recurring decimal is also introduced.
This clip is from the series Kick Sum Maths.
This clip could be used to demonstrate how being able to convert between fractions, decimals and percentages enables us to compare quantities presented in different ways.
Simple examples of comparison are questions such as “who's result is better: 12/20 or 55%?”.
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.
