### What is it?

It's easy to spend hours trying to find a resource that perfectly matches the lesson idea you have in your mind. This was the case when I was on the hunt for some clear, well-designed fraction, decimal and percentage equivalence resources. All I wanted were some images to support a simple lesson I was delivering to my bottom-set Year 7 class.

Fortunately, I got all that and more for £1 with this immaculately-produced set of 49 images, covering all of the main fraction, decimal and percentage conversions. Moreover, there are blank templates for students to shade, an accompanying PowerPoint presentation and a set of posters that can be printed out and displayed in your classroom.

### How can it be used?

This resource was, essentially, my lesson. I gave my students lots of blank grids and had several key questions up my sleeve, such as:

• How can you shade a quarter of this shape?
• How much of the shape is left unshaded?
• How would you convince someone that you have shaded in a quarter?
• How many different ways are there to do it?
• How would you convince someone that 0.25 is the same as 1/4?
• How many different fractions are the same as 80%?

This resource equipped me with the tools I needed to embark upon a challenging yet enjoyable lesson. By the end, the students had produced wonderful display work to go alongside the author’s professionally-produced images.
