    I have found a card sort helpful
    row one fraction cards
    row two their equivalent percentage
    row three their equivalent decimal.

    I group the fractions half quarter eighth three quarters / one third two thirds / one tenth one fifth four fifiths

    Most pupils will get the half 50% 0.5 column.

    Great addition to the fraction wall. What do you think of rotating the diagram so that 0% is at the bottom and 100% at the top to relate these equivalences to notion of fullness?
