Scribe {Josh}

Today in class we had three things to do.

1. Make a T-chart for all of those numbers we converted for the number line.

2. Fix our number line.

3. The homework that was on the overhead.

For the T-chart {Assignment 2}

On the left side you put whatever you converted your numbers to {for the giant number line}. So if you converted all of them into percents that is what you would put on the left side. It's the same for fractions, decimals, and ratios.

On the right side you put the raw value. It's what the number was before you converted it.

What you had to do on the number line was to put markers.

If you did it in percent you would do 10% 20% etc. Same for fractions and ratios. Then put your numbers in between them.
This is the homework:
Equivalent Assignment 3
1. Convert the following percents into decimals, fractions and ratios. Then put them on a number line.
35.5% 12.6%1.67% 93.6% 48%2.
Convert the following decimals into percents, fractions and ratios. Then put them on a number line.
0.23 0.906 0.078 0.65 0.10643.
Convert the following ratios into fractions, decimals, and percents. Then put them in a number line.
1:7 4:5 9:56 7:3 10:14.
Convert the following fractions to decimals, percents and ratios. Then put them on a number line.
8/9 4/7 12/17 3/8 8/21
Personal reflection.
What is the easiest conversion for you to do in this equivalent unit? Why?
What is the hardest conversion to do in this unit. Why? What makes this conversion hard for you?
Choose 3 values to convert to practice what you find difficult. Practice makes perfect.

Great detail and use of colour. You even have an image. Could you include a few links on how to do conversions?
