Reading and Writing Decimals
Decimals are quite often confusing for young mathematicians. Pupils engage in three activities: writing decimal names, understanding place value, and comparing decimals to thousandths. At the end of the lesson plan, there is a motivating game called beat the clock which will test your students' ability to correctly write decimals. A terrific lesson plan which should help your mathematicians gain confidence in this important area of math.
Comparing Decimals--Wider Isn't Always Larger!
If a number is longer, does that mean it is greater? Use a number line application of the TI-73 to compare and order decimals. By the lesson's end, the class will understand that the longer decimal is not always the largest decimal.
Comparing decimals can be easy. Watch and learn how to line up four decimal numbers vertically and then starting from the left, compare each number in each place value to determine which is largest and which is smallest. This procedure is clear and because it's not a complicated topic, explained very well.
Solving The Decimal Mystery
Students examine the different methods used to compare and order decimals. They participate in hands-on activities to order and compare decimals on their own.
Introduction to Decimals
In this math worksheet, students are introduced to decimals by first studying pattern blocks showing a number with tens, ones and tenths. Students locate decimals on number lines and rulers and shade decimal pictures. Students compare decimals with < and > signs. There are also problems which involve rounding decimals. There are 6 pages of problems.
Fifth and sixth graders compare decimals to the place-value structure in the base-ten number system. They represent fractions as parts of unit wholes, as parts of a set, as locations on a number line, and as divisions of whole numbers. Pupils solve addition or subtraction word problems using fractions with like denominators. Everyone solves multi-step number sentences and word problems using whole numbers and the four basic operations.
Comparing Decimals--Wider isn't Always Larger!
Students investigate comparing and ordering decimals. For this elementary mathematics lesson, students employ technology (TI-73) to explore decimals. The lesson is designed to clear up a common misconception in that students believe that the larger decimal number is always the one with more digits.
In this comparing decimals learning exercise, students compare numbers with decimals up to the hundredths place. Students complete 13 problems.
In this comparing decimals worksheet, students compare numbers with decimals in them by inserting the correct symbol. Students complete 10 problems.
A two-page assignment walks mathematicians through how to tell which decimal in a pair is greater. The page uses yellow highlight to emphasize the numerals in question, making the lesson much easier to follow. Learners locate decimals on a number line to compare them, and then write them in place value tables to compare them. They write the grreater than and less than symbols accordingly. Excellent practice!
Place Value of Decimals to Hundredths: Diving for Decimals
Constructing decimals correctly is a crucial concept for elementary students to grasp. Here, have the young mathematicians in your class explore standard and expanded form while comparing decimal values. This unit is taught while examining Olympic events.
Decimals in the Dugout
Students investigate place value and decimals during baseball related activities. For this place value lesson, students explore place value with decimals. Resources are included.
Decimals and Percents
In this decimals and percents activity, 8th graders solve 26 different types of problems that include expressing numbers as a decimal and a percent. Then they change each number to fractions and determine the unknown number for each given sentence. Students also round numbers as indicated for each problem.
Decimal Place Value Chart
In this decimal place value chart worksheet, students work independently to fill in the blanks on the chart so that the numbers equal out correctly and the missing words are stated correctly.
Complete problems using base ten blocks to see the difference in the place value of a decimal and how it affects a number's value. Learners compare decimal values as well. Ample time for discussion and modeling are allowed in the thoroughly laid out plans.
Compare Decimals and Fractions Worksheets
Find here three printable math skills practice pages. The first simply asks learners to fill in the inequality signs for the comparison of two decimals. No number exceeds the hundreds place. Worksheet two compares fractions in tenths or hundredths. In the thrid instructional activity, mathematicians compare decimal and fractional values, again of both tenths and hundredths. Answer keys are provided for all three assignments.
Comparing Decimals (B)
Practice makes perfect with this decimals assignment, Arithmeticians compare thirty pairs of numbers to the thousandth place are compared. For each, they must write the correct sign: or =. Add this to your collection of homework assignnments!
Comparing Fractions, Decimals, & Percents
Students comprehend the meaning of percents. They practice how to convert a decimal or a fraction to a percent. Students convert a percent to a decimal. They identify the numbers in a percent problem. Students practice the process of solving percent problems using proportions.
Reciprocal Learning-Decimal Review
Students use reciprocal learning to coach one another in review of their prior learning about decimals. In this peer reciprocal learning decimal review lesson, students participate in conversation, accountability, roles and relationships, and examining the process. By reviewing in this way, they will have the benefit of the social aspect to assist them in learning at a deeper level.
Lining up the Decimals
Fifth graders order decimals from least to greatest and greatest to least. For this decimal order lesson, 5th graders complete an online review of comparing 2 digit numbers. Students then complete a decimal order card game in groups. Students then complete a craft activity for decimal ordering.
