Based on data acquired from:
Information presented throughout this project will be targeted toward the lowest performance indicator in 5th grade math. This project will be a final culmination based on fractions, decimals and percents and their connection with each other and interpretation in everyday use. This project will also concentrate on use of technology to present data.
I have determined that if students have a basic understanding of relationships
among fractions and know the percent equivalents fluently, they can
make good estimates and can do many problems. Students then move from
percents to decimals, which have a more complicated notation than fractions
or percents. The application becomes more authentic and the exploration
process becomes more applicable.
