Pattern Block POW...
Exploring Fractions, Decimals, Percents
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 %

The red part is rounded to 33%

• identify, compare, and analyze attributes of two- and three-dimensional shapes and develop vocabulary to describe the attributes; 
• classify two- and three-dimensional shapes according to their properties and develop definitions of classes of shapes such as triangles and pyramids; 
• investigate, describe, and reason about the results of subdividing, combining, and transforming shapes; 
• explore congruence and similarity; 
• make and test conjectures about geometric properties and relationships and develop logical arguments to justify conclusions.
