For example, if I share a dollar with a friend we each get $.50 OR one-half (1/2) of a dollar. We used calculators to find the decimal equivalent to several fractions that we have been working with a lot.

Where do you find fractions and decimals in the real world? I challenge you to have a Scavenger Hunt to locate fractions or decimals. Some places that you might look are: on television, in the kitchen, around town (while riding in the car), in newspapers and so on.

Leave a comment and let me know when and where you find some examples of fractions and decimals.

Happy Hunting!

hey miss russell i love the picture of diffrent fraction and decimals.

i love the diffrent kinds of ways of decimals and fractions from alexis.

I figured out that sport statuses, sale signs for stores, and mile markers for exits on the roads use fractions and desimals.

Love you, Kayla
