We look at the connection between fractions, x decimals and percentages and how to convert between them. We show that percentages are amounts out of 100 which may simplify to an equivalent fraction. Division by 100 is used to convert percentages to decimals. Equivalent fractions and place value denominators are used to convert between decimals and fractions. We introduce the concept of a recurring decimal

Importance of using correct mathematical language. Descriptions of acute, right and obtuse angles as well as parallel and perpendicular lines. We compare and contrast the geometric properties of different triangles and quadrilaterals. First end sketch explores naming shapes through their properties. Second end sketch looks at different types of angles and how they relate to shapes. Final sketch looks at the properties of a rhombus.
