From: Mary <email@example.com> To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2003011619:55:48 Subject: Teaching repeating decimals to 7th graders These are all great explanations for how to convert a repeating decimal to a fraction, but how do you explain the logic behind it to 7th graders? I'm trying to come up with an explanation to get them to "buy in" to how it works. Any suggestions?
