# Lesson Plan: Converting Fractions to Recurring Decimals Mathematics • 7th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to convert proper fractions into decimals, noting that the decimal expansion of a number either terminates or eventually repeats.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• convert proper fractions to terminating decimals by division,
• recognize repeating and recurring decimals and write appropriate notation for them,
• convert proper fractions to recurring or repeating decimals by division,
• solve word problems involving converting proper fractions to terminating and recurring decimals.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• fractions and decimals,
• long and short division methods,
• rounding,
• converting fractions to decimals by rewriting the fraction to have a denominator of 10, 100, or 1,000 or by using multiples of unit fractions.
