7.
a] ron is wrong because you can’t do 0.10

8. it is because you can count to it then just say 0.8

great understanding of fractions. Question 8 was which way of showing tenths do you prefer and why?

• 24th March 2020 at 11:51 am

1: a: Shaded in 7 boxes. b: Shaded in 4 boxes. c: Shaded in 3 boxes.
2: Bar model 1: Fraction: 1/10. Decimal: 0.1. Bar model 2: Fraction: 5/10. Decimal: 0.5. Bar model 3: Fraction:6/10. Decimal: 0.6. Bar model 4: Fraction: 3/10. Decimal: 0.3.
3: 0.1 is 1 along from 0. 2/10 is 2 along from 0. 0.6 is 6 along from 0. 9/10 is 9 along from 0.
4: A: 3/10 or 0.3. B: 4/10 or 0.4. C: 7/10 or 0.7.
5: 3/10,0.3, three tenths. 9/10, 0.9, nine tenths. 7/10, 0.7, seven tenths. 4/10,0.4, four tenths. 1/10, 0.1, one tenth.
6: a:100. b:10. c:1.
7 I disagree with Ron because ten tenths would be a whole, so it wouldn’t be 0.10, it would be 1.0.
8: I think D is the best.

10 10 10 10 10

7. No i dont agree with Ron because it would look like 10/10.
8. I would choose C because it is shown in a clear way for people and it is obvious it is 8 squares.

1. A 7 Squares =4 squares
b. 0.3 = 3 squares
c. 4/10
2. 1/10 = 0.10
3 b 2/10 9/10 0.6
4. a 0.3 or 3 tenths
b . 0.4 or 4 tenths
c. 0.7 or 7 tenths
5. 3/10 = 0.3 =3 tenths
9/10 = 0.9 =nine tenths
7/10 = 0.7 = seven tenths
4/10 = 4.0 = 4 tenths
1/10 = 0.1 = one tenth

Good understanding of decimals and fractions

• 24th March 2020 at 1:54 pm

1: a = 7 squares
b= 4 squares
c= 3 squares

2: a = 1/10 or 0.1
b = 5/10 or 0.5
c = 6/10 or 0.6
d = 3/10 or 0.3

3: 0.1, 2/10,, 6/10, 0.9

4: a = 3/10 or 0.3
b = 4/10 or 0.4
c = 7/10 or 0.7

5: 3/10 or 0.3 or three tenths
9/10 or 0.9 or nine tenths
7/10 or 0.7 or seven tenths
4/10 or 0.4 or four tenths
1/10 or 0.1 or one tenth

6: a = 100
b = 10
c = 1

7: this is wrong as he done 0.1 not 1

8: I think it’s the shaded one as it’s easier to understand

• 24th March 2020 at 2:16 pm

Great understanding Owen

1.
a) 7 tenth =7 squares
b)4 tenths=4 squares
y
c)0.3=3 squares shaded at the back

2.
fraction decimal-yes
yes
yes
yes

3.
0.1-2 tenths-0.6-9 tenths

4.
A=4 tenths or 0.4
B=5 tenths or 0.5
C=8 tenths or 0.8

5.
3-10 goes to 0.3 goes to three tenths
9-10 goes to 0.9 goes to nine tenths
7-10 goes to 0.7 goes to seven tenths
4-10 goes to 0.4 goes to four tenths
1-10 goes to 0.1 goes to one tenths

6.
100
10
0.10

7.
yes because 1-10 and 1-9 can be 0.10 or 0.9 and there decimals

8.
the best is c
6 squares
0.1+0.1+0.1+0.1+0.1+0.1

Great understanding of decimals and Fractions Kristers

1a) 7 squares shaded
b) 4 squares shaded
c) 3 squares shaded
2a) 1/10, 0.1
b) 5/10, 0.5
c) 3/10, 0.3
3) 0.1, 2/10, 0.6, 9/10
4 a) 3/10 or 0.3
b) 4/10 or 0.4
c) 7/10 or 0.7
5) 3/10- 0.3- three tenths
9/10- 0.9- 9 tenths
7/10- 0.7- seven tenths
4/10- 0.4- four tenths
1/10- 0.1- one tenths
6) 1.0
0.1
0.01
7) He is incorrect. 10tenths as a fraction is 10/10 so in decimal it will be 1.00.
8) C
