The DeciFractor converts fractions to decimals from numbers you input. Fractions are then converted to their decimal value. There are several fractions already available on the site to use as demonstration; however the option is there to enter any fraction you would like. The numerator and denominator are clearly labeled and each of these numbers can be increased or decreased to demonstrate how the decimal will change by changing each part of the fraction.

tag(s): decimals (125), fractions (228), number sense (96)

In the Classroom

Use on the interactive whiteboard or projector to demonstrate and practice fraction to decimal equivalences. Before clicking to converta fraction you enter, have student predict the result. Use your whiteboard (and this site) to create a learning station for students to "try their hand at." Have students investigate patterns made by changing fractional parts. Be sure to click on the Ideas button towards the bottom of the page to get more ideas about how to use DeciFractor with your students.

This site offers a vast amount of resources for elementary math teachers. Activities are described within the site and also available for PDF download. The site was originally intended as a digital storage place for the creator's resources used in consulting work and evolved into a place to share math resources with other teachers. Included topics are numbers, geometry, and measurement/data. After choosing a topic, activities are divided by grade level. Be sure to look at other grade levels for activities that can be modified for your teaching situation. Also available on the site is extensive information about Math Journals (warning - their math journals are for sale on the site; however, information to make and use your own is free). Other topics include math games, centers, projects, mental math, and resources - including some for interactive whiteboards.

tag(s): data (161), geometric shapes (173), journals (20), measurement (175), mental math (30), rhymes (30)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource to supplement current classroom activities. If you are just implementing math journals, this site is a wonderful resource for ideas and implementation. Print out game directions for use at centers or in folders. Share this site on your class webpage for students to access both in and out of the class for extra practice and/or enrichment.

This site has proved an invaluable resource for teachers at my school. Lots of great resources for Math Centers/small group work and the journal tasks for K-5 are all really good! Highly recommend it to any teachers and/or math coaches trying to get their head around the Common Core Standards. Jane, , Grades: 0 - 5
