PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

**One of my favorite differentiated learning strategies & activities to use in my class!!
This activity includes 3 difficulty levels of fraction/decimal conversions that increase
as students work problems to move up the pyramid. Students are motivated by the
challenge and competition of making it to the very top of the pyramid (they beg me
for more time to work when I ask them to turn them in or put them away!!)

**Students move at their own pace to solve as many problems correctly as they can
in given time.

**Lower & middle layer = on-level conversions (i.e.,simple long
division/fractions that can be converted using place value as opposed to challenging
long division & repeating decimals)

**Top layer = on/above level

**Students work independently and at their own pace to convert positive & negative
fractions to decimals & decimals to fractions without calculators. They must start
at the bottom of the pyramid & correctly solve all problems in a layer in order to
move up into the above section. Students show all work on a separate sheet of
paper.

**Once my students solved 2-3 problems, they raised their hands for me to check
work/answers. If problems are correct, they continue working. For incorrect
answers, students must rework problems until they arrive at a correct answer.

**Students work during a class period to solve problems; typically, activity requires
more than our allotted 40 minutes, so I have students pull out the worksheet to
work on as a bell ringer, for early finishers, etc.
