Follow Davey around as he asks his best friend Steve how to convert a fraction to a decimal. The bell’s about to ring, and Steve gives him the perfect advice in the nick of time!

Later on, Davey helps correct the misconceptions of his personified stuffed animal by showing him that fractions are division. And finally, Davey texts his friend Alana before their school dance (where NUMBEROCK Live is performing) who helps him clear up one more question he has about the conversion process.

In the end, Alana, Steve, and Davey all make it to the school dance where they rock out on stage to the performance they’ve all been waiting for!

Convert a Fraction to a Decimal
LYRICS
I asked my friend, “Which way is optimal
to convert a fraction to a decimal?
I gotta know now; I can’t wait ‘til later.”
She said “Divide the numerator by the denominator.”
So I asked, “Huh, well how can that be done?
As far as I know, two doesn’t go into one.”
She said, “Listen, here’s what you need to know:
just write a decimal point, followed by a zero.
And you know two goes into ten five times;
then the decimal point rises above the line!”

The numerator becomes the dividend.
Then write a decimal point and a zero in the tenths.
Divide and write the decimal point in the quotient.
So, one half and five tenths are equivalent.

Later on I was hanging with my stuffed animal,
showing him how to convert a fraction to a decimal.
I divided the numerator by the denominator
as he sat there real quiet like a spectator.
I bet he was thinking, “Five can’t go into two!?”
But luckily for him I knew just what to do.
I said, “Listen, here’s how it’s got to go:
just write a decimal point, followed by a zero.
Then five goes into twenty (four times),
and the decimal point jumps up on the line!”

The numerator becomes the dividend.
Then write a decimal point and a zero in the tenths.
Divide and write the decimal point in the quotient.
So, two fifths and four tenths are equivalent.

I had to get my homework done before the school dance.
I had to convert a fraction - couldn’t leave it to chance.
I divided the numerator by the denominator,
but to my surprise, there was a remainder.
I texted my friend, “I don’t want to be late.
Can you tell me how to divide one by eight?”
She said, “Write two more zeroes to the right of the dividend.
The value will be unchanged; it’s equivalent.”
I divided the two numbers and got point one two five.
We arrived just in time to see NUMBEROCK Live!

This video addresses the following Common Core Standards:

CCSS.Math.Content.5.NF.B.3
Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (a/b = a ÷ b). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.

CCSS.Math.Content.5.NBT.B.7
Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
