Create a Fractions, Decimals and Percentages Display

Fractions, percentages and decimals can be challenging concepts for students to understand. That’s where Teach Starter’s Fractions, Decimals and Percentages Wheels can help!

Explore our comprehensive set of fraction, decimal and percentage circles designed to enhance your teaching of equivalency concepts. These circles serve as powerful visual aids, offering an engaging way for your students to grasp the relationships between fractions, decimals and percentages.

To make the most of this resource, simply print the circles on durable card and cut out each piece. Attach a small magnetic strip to the back of each circle, allowing for easy use on a magnetic whiteboard. This hands-on approach enables you and your students to manipulate the pieces, providing a dynamic learning experience as you showcase various equivalencies.

The fraction, percentage and decimal wheels included in this resource are:

  • Wholes – 1 Whole, 100%, 1/1
  • Halves – 50%, 0.5, 1/2
  • Quarters – 25%, 0.25, 1/4
  • Fifths – 20%, 0.2, 1/5
  • Eighths – 12.5%, 0.125, 1/8
  • Tenths – 10%, 0.1, 1/10

This resource downloads as either a full-colour or black-and-white PDF.

Suggested Uses for These Fractions, Decimals and Percentages Wheels

  1. Fraction Composition and Decomposition – Use the circles to demonstrate how to compose and decompose fractions. For example, show how 1/2 is equivalent to 2/4 or 0.5. Challenge students to find multiple ways to compose a whole using the circles, fostering a deeper understanding of fraction relationships.
  2. Interactive Games – Develop games like ‘Fraction Memory’ where students match visual representations of equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages. Incorporate a time element for added excitement, encouraging quick thinking and recognition.
  3. Fraction Talks – Conduct ‘Fraction Talks’ where students discuss and explain their thinking about different sets of circles, promoting mathematical discourse. Encourage students to justify their reasoning and debate equivalencies with their peers.
  4. Create a Classroom Display – Have students collaboratively create a colorful display showcasing different sets of equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages using the circles. Display the work prominently in the classroom to serve as a visual reference throughout the unit.

Remember to foster a positive and collaborative learning environment, encouraging students to explore, discuss and connect their understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages using these interactive circles.

    Great resource! Is there any chance you could add a wheel with eighths?
