        When I taught gifted students (4-6) fractions, decimals, and Percentages were taught as equivalencies. Students that had some difficulty were shown how decimals were used to denote currency and how "half dollars," "quarters," "dimes," and "nickels" were fractional names for $.50, $.25,.$.10, and $.05, and that 50/100, 25/100, 10/100, and 5/100 were expressed as rhese percentages: 50%, 25%, 10%, and 5%. After tenths we worked of fifths and fourths. Thirds, sixths, eighths, ninths, and twelths were determined using division. Once students saw the relationship between all three their understanding of each numerical form.
