Help your math learner understand that fractions and decimals are equal numbers. Encourage him to find a fraction in the real world and talk about that number not only as a fraction but also a decimal. Talk about where these numbers fall on a number line and how they relate to whole numbers. For example: “I see a sale for ¼ off the toy. That is also 0.25 of the total price. This is less than ½ .”
Practice this concept by matching the equivalent fraction and decimal on this printable. Encourage your child to talk about how she knows these numbers are equal.
