This interactive Flash applet can be used to compare and explore equivalence among fractions, decimals and percentages. It allows a child or teacher to represent fractions on one or more fraction strips, and to color individual parts. Each displayed strip can be labelled as a fraction, a decimal (to three decimal places) or a percentage; the ratio of yellow to green parts of each strip can also be displayed. It lends itself well to use with an interactive white board. A pdf guide to this collection of teaching applets is cataloged separately.
