Decimals, Fractions and Percentages are just different ways of showing the same value. Children need to learn how to manipulate this information, and show their understanding by converting a percentage to a decimal, or a fraction into a percentage. Equivalence Bones are an excellent resource to encourage this.

Can be used as a front of class flash card or for pupils to work with either individually or in groups. Just move the slider to conceal another equivalent form and you have a whole new problem. Made from durable plastic.
