Piece = Part = Portion: Fractions = Decimals = Percents/Pedazo = Parte = Porcion: Fracciones = Decimales = Porcentajes

Overview

Find fractions frustrating?
Do decimals get you down?
Perhaps you’re puzzled by percents.
Never fear—the solution to your confusion is here!

See, fractions, decimals, and percents are different math terms that describe the same thing—a piece, part, or portion of a larger whole. It’s just like “hello,” “hola,” and “bonjour” mean “Hi there!”—but each in a different language. ...

Overview

Find fractions frustrating?

Perhaps you’re puzzled by percents.
Never fear—the solution to your confusion is here!

See, fractions, decimals, and percents are different math terms that describe the same thing—a piece, part, or portion of a larger whole. It’s just like “hello,” “hola,” and “bonjour” mean “Hi there!”—but each in a different language. Once you’ve mastered this simple concept, you can try it out on your friends. Ask them for 0.5 of their pizza. You’ll be finished eating before they realize they agreed to give you half!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Traci Avalos
This short picture book helps to make the relationships between fractions, decimals, and percents understandable for students who are just learning or are struggling with the concepts. It begins with a very helpful explanation about each word, even describing how to say the word (for example, ½ is said "one half"). The rest of the introduction illustrates how to use math to find a decimal from a fraction and a percent from a decimal. The author uses the description of this relationship to explain how each concept describes the same thing in a different way. The majority of the book uses photos to illustrate parts of a whole and the fraction, decimal, and percent that they each describe. There are fifteen examples given, each using a picture to show the portion described. While the author does not show the math on each page, the pages are set up with the fraction at the top and the decimal and percent at the bottom, which would make it easy to cover while the reader figures out the answer. The book is fully bilingual in English and Spanish. Reviewer: Traci Avalos
From the Publisher
“[A] startlingly clear mathematical perspective.” —School Library Journal

“[A] fun way to make math concepts less mysterious.” —Dallas Morning News

Meet the Author

Scott Gifford has been an elementary school teacher since 1979. In his youth, he was flummoxed by fractions, daunted by decimals, and puzzled by percents. He and his family live on an acre of heaven in Sebastopol, California. This is his first book for children.

Shmuel Thaler, an award-winning photojournalist, has been a staff photographer at the Santa Cruz Sentinel since 1987. He has also been published in Time, Newsweek, People, and most major U.S. newspapers, and contributed to five children’s books including his first with Tricycle Press, Pumpkin Circle. Thaler lives in Santa Cruz, California, with his favorite subjects—wife Kathy and daughters, Kayla and Hannah.

Read an Excerpt

Hello Hola Bonjour
Each of these words mean the same thing—a friendly greeting—in a different language.

Glad Merry Joyful
Each of these words refers to the same thing—a happy feeling—in a slightly different way.

Fractions Decimals Percents
Each of these words describes the same thing—a part of something—by a different name.

Fractions look like this: 1/2 and sound like this: one half
Decimals look like this: .50 and sound like this: ifty hundredths
Percents look like this: 50% and sound like this: fifty percent

The fraction 1/2 means “1 divided by 2”. To find the decimal version of 1/2 , divide 1 by 2 and the result is the decimal .50.

1/2 = .50/1.00

To find the percent version of .50, multiply .50 by 100 (“percent” means “for each hundred”), add a percent sign and the result is 50%.

.50 x 100 = 50%

It often seems as though fractions, decimals, and percents are three separate, unconnected ideas. But fractions are used for more than just to show parts of things. Decimals are not only used when working with money. And percents can be used for much more than just calculating sales tax and interest.

In the language of mathematics, fractions, decimals, and percents are three different, but connected, ways of describing the same parts of things.
