Sixteen doughnut puzzle pieces. Victorian Curriculum outcome : Make connections between equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages. Task description : Students solve the doughnut puzzle by creating four four-domino doughnuts where the meeting ends are equivalent. Once they have done this, they prove each connection using decimal and fraction squares. Assessment options : Photograph of doughnuts with proofs. Teacher notes : Some proofs are much harder than others: particularly those that involve thirds. Encourage students to see that percentage means โout of 100โ and so all percentages should be done with a hundredths square. Downloads :ย Doughnut percents cards Fractions and decimal squares
