Converting between fractions and decimals

Hey everyone!  As you know, I will not be in school on Friday for Rosh Hashanah so I hope that class goes well and you do your best work with the sub.  You will correct the homework from today and work on a class assignment during the period.  If you finish early, there should be a challenge problem for you!

In class today, we began looking at converting decimals to fractions and fractions to decimals.  I was going to type out a big long informational post, but I found two great pages on mathisfun.com that covers everything.  If you have questions, click the links below.

Converting fractions to decimals

These links should be a big help!  Fractions should always be in lowest terms when possible.  Remember that when you divide a fraction to turn it into a decimal, the NUMERATOR goes inside the house and the DENOMINATOR is on the outside.  Be on the lookout for repeating decimals and use bar notation when you find one.  Otherwise it should be Terminating.

Have a lovely weekend.  I won't be posting tomorrow or Friday.  L'Shana Tovah if you are celebrating the Holiday.  :)
