This zip file has both the student worksheet and an answer key. This activity can be done over the course of several days, filling in the appropriate components as they are covered in class. After we have finished the worksheet, I often give the students a copy of the answer key as their versions are often very messy.

I do not expect them to memorize this chart, but rather to look at patterns.

On a test I will give them a similar table where I give one or the three representations and they have to find the other two.

This activity requires students to fill in a chart giving the equivalent fraction, decimal and percent forms of numbers. It could be incorporated as an ongoing project as new concepts are introduced. The students get practice with basic conversions, and they can then discover patterns that emerge. It seems the effectiveness of this activity depends a lot on facilitation. I plan on using this in my basic skills courses, but I will formulate a few questions for the students about the patterns that emerge when the chart is filled. Does anyone have suggestions on the facilitation of this activity?

I can see this worksheet taps a lot of different skills. I think I would first introduce it when I first introduce decimals (after fractions), and ask the students if any of them look easy to do. I would bring it back out with percents, and I might even break it out for my intermediate algebra students when we are looking a series representation of repeating decimals.
