In this unit, students begin to learn about different ways of representing proportion and how to convert between them. Students will start by converting decimals to fractions, and then look at converting fractions to decimals (including fractions that give a recurring decimal). They will then look at how to convert percentages into fractions and decimals, and fractions and decimals into percentages. Finally, students will learn how to arrange lists of mixed fractions, decimals and percentages into order from lowest to highest.
