Strengthen student understanding of how to compare fractions, decimals, and percentages with this worksheet.
Let’s Compare Fractions, Decimals, and Percentages
Do your students understand the relationship between decimals, fractions, and percentages? Are they in need of additional practice when it comes to comparing these values? Teach Starter has created a worksheet for you to use with your students when working on this skill in your math class.
With this worksheet, students will compare a variety of fractions, decimals, and percentages. In order to compare accurately, students must convert one value to another, so that the comparison can be made. This can be achieved by converting a fraction to a decimal, a decimal to a percentage, a percentage to a decimal, etc. Students also will have practice comparing percentages at the bottom of this worksheet.
An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
