Based on comments and feedback received as a result of the fraction wall posted a little while ago, I said that I would create a version that included decimals, to help make that visual link, in the same way as fractions and to help make the connection between the fraction and decimal.
A couple of points to make, some of the decimals are rounded, so if they are added across they may not total 1, exactly. Most will be slightly over, but 9ths will only total to 0.99.
And from the 10ths onwards, there wasn’t enough space to include the fraction and decimal in each box, so I have alternated them.
I look forward to hearing how you used this and the value it brings to your learners.

Maths & English: Effective Target Setting
Category: Planning maths and English learning
Are the targets set around maths, English and the use of technology as effective for learners as they could be?
Do you feel that learners take ownership of their progress and achievement?
If the answer is NO to either question ….. then this free, live, bite-sized training could be just the thing to help better understand some of the concepts that support effective target setting.
In this live and interactive bite-sized training, Christine Edwards QTLS will cover some of the core considerations that support the process of excellent target setting and share some key techniques that will help to improve practice and add value for learners.
This bite-sized, live, interactive training is aimed at colleges, training providers and organisations delivering apprenticeships who feel the way that targets set for maths, English and the use of technology does not fully embrace purposeful vocational programme integration.
It is suitable for Curriculum/ Quality managers/ Subject Leads/Educators/ Mentors/Coaches, who recognise that target setting could be more effective and support the learner’s development to a higher level of independence in the core areas of maths, English and technology use.
The 30-minute introductory webinar will cover:
- Target setting concepts and misconceptions
- Effective target setting strategies and techniques
- Adding value for learners
Date: Monday, 30th November 2020.
Time: 9.30 – 10.00 am
I have had a few questions about the fraction wall I shared last week and how I use it with learners, so I have recorded a short video to explain. I hope you find it useful.
