Students can use this calculating applet to explore the relation between fractions, decimals, ratios, and percentages. When students enter any two out of the three numbers representing a fraction or percent (part, whole, percent), the applet calculates the third, shows pie chart and bar chart representations of the amount, and provides an equation showing the calculation. Applet instructions and teaching ideas are included in the links at the top of the page.
