#### Learning Objectives

Students will be able to convert tenths fractions into decimals.

#### Introduction

(15 minutes)
• Hand out graph paper to each student and have them write their name on the paper.
• Tell the students they will be using their knowledge of fractions to write numbers using decimals.
• Ask for 10 volunteers to come to the front of the classroom.
• As you choose students to come to the front, identify a like characteristic of the students. Example: 4 students have brown hair.
• Ask the students that are sitting how many students out of the ten have a like characteristic and write the number as a fraction on the board. Example: 4 students have brown hair so you would write 4/10 on the board.
• Repeat the above process after you switch volunteers and have at least 4 to 5 different fractions written on the board.
