Fractions can be converted from their form, being fractions, to percentages and to decimals.
Percentages are like fractions except a percentage is always over 100 and a fraction can have any number as a denominator. e.g. ½ = %50 = 0.5 = a half = fifty percent = point five

Well done guys. I really like the way you took the initiative to include percentages. Your matrix demonstrates both your understandings of the range of ways in which fractions, decimals and percentages are unique and also how they are connected. I also like the way you showed how they are used within everyday life. Again well done, simple yet clear.
