Equipment Needed : Photocopies of tenths, hundredths and thousandths squares. 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 fourdomino 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 โout of 100โ and so all percentages should be done with a hundredths square.
