This is a great idea to organize the differences and relationships between fractions, decimals, and percents! I think I could definitely use this in the classroom even with my fourth graders once they get a better handle on the conversion between fractions, decimals, and percents.I'm not sure if this was meant as review or an introduction, but it might have been better to use more scaffolding, like showing all the steps to get to each fraction/percent/decimals. I would have also benefitted from more pictures. I know from my past experience, it really helps to show me an image to remember fractions. There are some good visuals that also convey the percentage that is colored in. This would really help as a UDL principle. Bolding or using text features would have made vocabulary and important information stand out.

Technical Remarks:

Just a couple suggestions, I'm am not sure if all of the arrows were linked right, at one point it took me to an answers page before I had even viewed the questions. I also could not get the sounds to work when I clicked on the speaker.

Overall, I found this to be a useful review of fractions, decimals, and percents.  I used this in my classroom and found it to be very engaging and useful.  I enjoyed the description of the various mathematical principles, and I found that they were very helpful for my students.  The quiz gave quick feedback to the students about what they understood and which areas they need more work on.  I felt the instruction was useful, however, I feel that pictoral representations of fractions, decimals, and percentages would have aided the understanding of the more visual students.

Technical Remarks:

Everything seemed to work well.  Some of my students found the sounds difficult to access, but it may have been a compatability issue with the computers they were using.
