**Title:** Can a Fraction be a Decimal?

**Description:**
This podcast discusses how to change fractions and decimals into percentages.

**Standard(s): **

[MA2013] (3) 13: Understand a fraction ^{1}/_{b} as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into *b* equal parts; understand a fraction ^{a}/_{b} as the quantity formed by *a* parts and size ^{1}/_{b}. [3-NF1]

[MA2013] (3) 15: Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size. [3-NF3]

[MA2013] (4) 14: Understand a fraction ^{a}/_{b} with *a* > 1 as a sum of fractions ^{1}/_{b}. [4-NF3]

[MA2013] (4) 15: Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number. [4-NF4]

[MA2013] (5) 11: Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. [5-NF1]

[MA2013] (5) 17: Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions. (Students able to multiply fractions in general can develop strategies to divide fractions in general by reasoning about the relationship between multiplication and division. However, division of a fraction by a fraction is not a requirement at this grade.)
