While my students should be able to convert fluently between decimals, fractions and percents, few can actually do so. I think they don’t actually understand the meaning of “per-cent.” I loved your explanation of this.
I also really like the concept of creating your own units of measurement. I think this would give students a solid foundation to then understand different units of measure.
