Multiplication and division Term 2/3

WALT solve written division by showing remainder as a decimal.

I have learned how to divide numbers that are hard to work out on their own, by using this strategy. Usually I write the remainder, but we are learning to convert the remainder into a decimal. In this case, the remainder was R1. In a fraction, that would be 1/4. In a decimal, 0.25. so I just add 0.25 on the end to show my understanding and working out.

This Term we are learning about Percentages, Ratios and Proportions. I think my next step is to understand percentages, and to be able to easily convert decimals, fractions, and remainders into percentages. I would like to work on this because percentages are my weak spot in Maths.
