Fractions, Decimals and Percents

Curriculum Published Apr 16, 2014 Last updated on Jun 8, 2017

This tutorial iBook is leveled at the primary grades 3-5. Teaching fractions, decimals and percents are tied together in comparing and associating with each other. Basic arithmetic skills with fractions and decimals are reviewed using multimedia and interactive animations, including in-book assessments. A new approach was taken in this iBook as I collaborated with a high school student, Dominic Redding, in (fellow AEL) Mike Skocko's class 3,000 miles away using Edge Animate, to create an exciting game that encourages kids to improve their skills in converting from fractions to decimals to percents. Kids teaching kids...what a concept. The actual game widget is attached.
