Fractions, decimals and percentages

Year 8

So you want to know the diference between a terminating decimal and a recurring decimal? This is the video for you. I take a look at the difference between the two types of decimals and show you how you can use the dot and line notation to express recurring decimals. There is also an explanation of how to round decimal numbers to a varying number of decimal places. A number of worked examples are delivered in a clear and amusing way.
