This nifty little pyramid summarises how to convert between fractions, decimals and percentages.
A5 paper or lightweight card
Compasses & pencil
Make a square
Fold the paper over to make a perfect 45 degree angle. Cut off the excess paper to make a square.
Fold & Cut
Unfold the square and fold the opposite diagonal. Cut from one corner to the middle along the fold.
Draw an X on one of the quarters next to the cut. You will glue this piece later.
Either side of each fold label ‘Fraction’, ‘Percent’, ‘Decimal’.
Using compasses and pencil, lightly draw two circles. Go over these lines with a pen to create one set of arrows going clockwise and one set anti-clockwise.
Label each arrow with the correct conversion fact and example.
Fold the X flap behind the next section and glue in place.
This is a tactile activity which could be used on a wall display. It can also be collapsed down flat where it can be taped on one side into a book and ‘pop up’ when required.
