Fraction, Decimal, Percent Puzzles


     My kids needed a fun way to practice converting fractions to decimals to percents and to recognize the major ones we use day-to-day.  I came up with this Fraction, Decimal, Percent Puzzles format and invited a "product test group" (my students) to give it a try. Results were mostly positive!
     There are several ways to play...one student can solve all of the puzzles or small groups can play.  Directions and photos are included in the product and below.  I made sure that each student had pencil and paper or whiteboards and markers to justify their math reasoning.  That is, if a player wants to add a piece to a puzzle, he/she has to show the math to prove it fits.


     If you've read this far, I'll do this for you: Leave a comment and your email address any time between now and February 28, 2015 and I'll send you a FREE copy!
     I'd love to hear what you're doing in your classroom with fractions, decimals, and percents!
