Working with decimals or money math? Give your class some practice with subtraction and place value. After solving 18 subtraction problems with decimals and money units, fourth graders work on two word problems. A great homework assignment or quiz after your math lesson.
Compare and order fractions and decimals in order to represent fractional numbers on a number line. Your class can use sets of Fraction Tower Equivalency Cubes, if available, to help model the fractions and find the decimal equivalent using the cubes.
In this decimal comparison worksheet, students insert the greater than, less than or equal to symbol to compare pairs of decimal integers. Answers are included on page 2.
In this comparing decimals worksheet, students choose the correct comparison symbols to compare numbers with decimals. Students complete 10 problems.
Review word problems and decimals with a worksheet that features everyday problems for your students to solve. Six problems provide space for both work and the solution, reinforcing the importance of showing one's work in word problems. Use this in your decimals or money math unit as an assessment or homework assignment.
It's all about decimals in these word problems, which have scholars apply math to scenarios they will likely come across later in life. Working with multi-digit numbers and decimals to the hundredths place, learners must determine the operation for each of six problems and show their work in the designated place. They use subtraction, multiplication, and division to solve these, and can reference the two examples if they need to.
Get your mathematicians ready to add up restaurant tabs using decimal addition problems. Using two examples to guide their processing, they find the sum of eight vertically aligned number pairs, all of which have decimals. They complete six more horizontally aligned equations and two word problems. Some of these are money math and others involve different units such as kilometers. 
Show scholars that if they can do long division, they can divide numbers with decimals in them. There are 12 problems in this set; each dividend is a decimal to the hundredths place, while each divisor is a single-digit number. You may want to number the problems before copying to make reviewing easier. An answer key is provided with each problem fully worked out.
Practice subtracting decimals to the hundredths place. This assignment includes amounts of money and units of measurement. Three sections of problems provide subtraction problems in both vertical and horizontal formats, as well as two word problems at the bottom of the page. A great review assignment after your decimals lesson!
Practice money and measurement math with a thorough worksheet. Two examples at the top of the page remind fourth graders how to solve subtraction problems using decimals. After working through 14 problems, they then solve two word problems involving money and measurement.
Subtraction is more fun when there's money involved! Fourth graders subtract amounts of money and units of measurement in sixteen vertical and horizontal problems. The last two problems are word problems, helping your kids practice writing out equations. A great way to review decimals and subtraction!
Estimation is a good way to build and assess a student's number sense. Watch as Sal uses estimation to solve a problem where he must determine how much 'Janelle' ran during a 4-day period. He calculates the exact amount and compares the two answers. This shows both the accuracy and issues involved with solving by estimation.
Comparing and rounding decimals are skills that take practice. This presentation does a great job of clearly showing how to do these techniques, and has many slides where learners get practice while being guided through all of the steps. This would be an ideal presentation to use at the beginning of a unit on decimals.
Mixed numbers made easy! Use a worksheet on fractions and decimals to help your fourth graders master converting mixed numbers to decimals - and vice versa. They work on mixed numbers and decimals, and then convert three fractions into decimals. The last section prompts pupils to convert three decimals into fractions. A great quiz or homework activity!
Voila! Young mathematicians become magicians as they turn fractions into decimals and decimals into fractions. They reference examples before completing 37 transformations on their own. The first 16 are fractions with a denominator of 10, and scholars write the equivalent decimal for each. The next 16 are decimals to the tenths place to be converted to fractions. There are five analysis questions to further solidify these concepts (i.e. "Which two of the fractions above are the same as 0.4?").
Help mathematicians convert fractions to decimals and vice versa through these exercise sets. First, they write out nine fractions as decimals. This is really a practice in place value, as all the denominators here are 10. One of them requires multiplying to become an equivalent fraction with the denominator of 10. Next, they write nine decimals as fractions, also with 10 as denominators. Some of these need simplifying, and scholars are prompted to do this in the specific equations. Learners repeat this entire process with 100 as the denominator. The examples here provide great guidance and the self-prompting steps in each problem are extremely helpful.
Practice putting decimals in order. This resource presents ten sets of decimals for kids to order. After working through the first five sets, they review measurement and unit conversion (kilometers and meters) in the next five problems. A nice way to review a lesson on decimals!
Introduce decimals to your fourth grade class with a instructional activity that provides four number lines for them to complete. A list of decimals have already been plotted on the number lines; learners only need to label each point. This is a great way to scaffold learning for additional lessons on decimals and number lines.
How well can your fifth graders work with decimals? What about subtracting decimals? Use this resource to practice these important skills. Sixteen problems help pupils subtract decimals to the hundredths place, while 10 problems at the end of the page have the problems in horizontal format. 
Are your fourth graders having problems with decimals? Help them identify the place value of various numbers. Here, they describe what happens to the value of different numbers, as well as select numbers with given values in the tenths and hundredths. A great way to wrap up a lesson on decimals.
