##### Purpose

- We are learning to place decimals and fractions on a number line
- We are learning the connections between decimals and fractions
- We are learning that there are many ways to write the same numbers
- We are learning to recognise, interpret and model fractions and decimals

##### Curriculum Connections

- Model and represent unit fractions including 1/2, 1/4, 1/3, 1/5 and their multiples to a complete whole (ACMNA058)
- Count by quarters halves and thirds, including with mixed numerals. Locate and represent these fractions on a number line (ACMNA078)
- Recognise that the place value system can be extended to tenths and hundredths. Make connections between fractions and decimal notation (ACMNA079)

##### At the end of this lesson students should be able to answer the following questions

- Are fractions and decimals the same or different?
- When do we use fractions?
- When do we use decimals?
- Why do we need both?
