W.A.L.T find fractions, decimals, and percentages of amounts expressed as whole numbers, simple fractions and decimals
I learnt how to multiply fractions because I didn't know how to do it before but now I do.
I found multiply fractions was hard because when I got one right, I would get one wrong after that and it was frustrating.
