Students have sheet with 4 strips. Blank to start with - they begin with known fractions/decimals eg 1/2 (= 50/100, 5/10), 1/4 (25/100), 3/4 etc and the decimals that go with the fractions 0.5, 0.25 and 0.75, then write the remaining decimals on the first strip ( 0 to 1). Join two strips together, markings from 1 to 2, so students can see that 2 shared between two (ie halved) is one, two shared between 4 is half. Join three strips together and see what three shared between two is as a decimal! Finally four strips are labelled and 4 shared between three which equals 4 thirds=1.3 can be seen.
