The material and design of this grid allows children to continually fold and unfold it again and again to find equivalent fraction, percentage and decimal values.
How to use it
The Fraction Grid shows the relationship between fractions and percentages on the front face with the equivalent decimal values on the reverse. By folding the grid down the vertical channels children can discover that 1/4 is the same as 25% and 0.25, etc. and by folding the grids again and again they can find the equivalent fractions, percentages and decimals that mke up 1.
