“After years of being thrown terms such as percentage and decimal, someone (CLC tutor Sioux) finally broke down their meanings and origins to me. Learning that ‘dec’ was based on every tenth, and ‘cent’ was based on every hundredth as their Latin meaning, was very interesting.
Also, learning all the different ways to write a fraction just to find out they’d all come to the same conclusion makes me wonder why we can’t decide to just use one of the ways to write them. Either way, very interesting and I do look forward to finding more meanings behind all these words and numbers.”
