Match a decimal part with a fractional part or a percent. Or match a percent with a fractional part. This can be done with two, three or all four modules.
Odd one Out
\nSnap all four modules together. Flip the cards so that only three of the modules match. Ask students to state which card is the "odd one out" and call on a volunteer to change the card to match. Repeat the activity several times, making sure that you alternate the modules displaying the mismatched cards
\nSelect two modules, such as the ones displaying fractions and decimals and display them separately. Flip 2 cards that don't match such as 1/5 and 0.25. Then have students point out whether the amount on the left is greater than, equal to, or less than the amount shown on the right.
