This week, we will begin an investigation into "conversions of equivalence"...the use of fractions, decimals, and percents interchangeably to facilitate comparison and ordering of values. We'll use graphics to make this easier, while also focusing on tried-and-true methods of converting between the different forms. Since we'll be working with fractions, last week's knowledge will be strengthened as well!
