# 5th Grade Unit 6 – Fractions, Decimals, and Percents

### Unit Overview

#### Content Focus –

Students work to represent the meaning of fractions, decimals, and percents and the relationship among them.  Students will work to understand, represent,  and compare fractions and decimals.  They will work with decimals using all four operations to solve problems.

#### Looking Back…

Earlier in the year, students worked adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions, mixed numbers and whole numbers.  They also worked with percents, comparing them to fractions and representing both.  Students have explored decimal fractions.

#### Looking Forward…

This is the final unit in the Rational Number strand of Investigations.  Later, students will apply their understanding of fractions, percents, and decimals to develop fluency with computation involving rational numbers.
