#OneGoodThing

Working with a small group on converting between fractions and decimals and fractions and percents. We looked at dividing vs converting to an equivalent fraction out of 100 when the denominators were factors of 100. Had a student realize that division “wasn’t hard”. This was a surprising development as I expected students to see that converting to an equivalent fraction was faster in nearly every case. The same student went back to his seat, finish my assignment and then move over to Khan Academy where he mastered two previously skipped skills in division because he hadn’t gotten it before. High five!
