Fractions, Decimals, and Percents by David A. AdlerI cant figure out what grade level this book is for!
The beginning of the book is geared maybe toward 3rd grade. But then division with decimals shows up, and thats 5th grade.
I think the book does a good job explaining F, D, and %, and I might read it to my 5th graders. I have the high group, so they will probably roll their eyes at the first part, but I think they will learn something from the second half.
I like the concept of the carnival and where you would see F, D, and % there. My class is just now figuring out where in real life those are and how they are used. I think this book would be a good intro to that. I will try it out with them and see how it goes.

We encounter ideas related to fractions, decimals, ratios and percents on a daily basis. Confident and flexible understanding of these ideas are key to everyday estimation and mental calculation in contexts as diverse as shopping and budgeting, diluting mixtures, understanding scales on maps, interpreting probabilities and odds, and converting among metric units.
Quite simply, fractions, decimals and percentages all represent parts of a whole. We may see and use them inadvertently in everyday life, but just how much do you remember about fractions, decimals and percentages and the relationship between them from your time in school? Fractions are used to represent smaller pieces or parts of a whole. The parts might make up one thing, or more than one thing. For sharing a singular whole amount, you can think of a chocolate bar, a cake bar, or muffin. For grouping an amount into fractional parts, you can imagine a bag of sweets — there are lots of sweets in the bag, but you need all of them to make up the whole bag. When compared to decimals and percentages, fractions are probably seen least regularly on a daily basis, but nevertheless, fractions do still play an important role in our everyday lives.
An activity based on the game 'Pelmanism'. Set your own level of challenge and beat your own previous best score. The number 2. What is the sum of the denominator and numerator? Ben passed a third of his counters to Jack, Jack passed a quarter of his counters to Emma and Emma passed a fifth of her counters to Ben. After this they all had the same number of counters. Whenever a monkey has peaches, he always keeps a fraction of them each day, gives the rest away, and then eats one.
