Lemonidis, Charalampos; Pilianidis, Nikos – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
One of the attributes of rational numbers that make them different from integers are the different symbolic modes (fraction, decimal and percentage) to which an identical number can be attributed (e.g. 1/4, 0.25 and 25%). Some research has identified students' difficulty in mental calculations with rational numbers as has also the switching to…
