Using the pattern blocks and counting the triangle as 1/12 can you make a symetrical picture, then a chart listing by color the fraction name, decimal name? Finally can you determine the % of each color you used in your picture? In your comment can you discover a connection between fractions and decimals and percents?
Your circle of % should be based upon adding up the decimals and finding parts to the total.
Mine would be:
white 5/12 = . 416
red 4/12 = .333
green 3/12 = .25
Total 12/12 = 1.00
My percents are based upon dividing 1.0 into the decima You may use a calculator to discover the results. Don't forget to multiply by 100 to change a decimal to a %
