Explore all things decimal in this thorough series of introduction activities. Including scripting for the teacher and detailed descriptions and examples, the plan begins by reviewing the basics of place value and writing fractions as decimals, works through rounding, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing numbers with decimals, and culminates in word problems and linear equations involving decimals.
Develop deeper understanding of fractions with your young mathematicians. With the first page, learners shade in circles to compare two fractions: which is larger? Are they equal? On the second page, learners identify the fractions that are equal to the fraction listed on the left.
Ordering numbers just got physical! Learners practice putting numbers in sequence, both in fraction and decimal form. To begin, they line up in birthday order and discuss the difference between ascending and descending. They are then given cards with fractions, decimals, or a combination of both, some of which are equivalent. After more practice at their desks, individuals discuss their thinking as they sequenced a set of numbers.
Young scholars identify and write the decimal and fraction represented in a given model. In this fractions and decimals lesson, students write the numerical equivalent in decimal and fraction form after observing the teacher create a model with various manipulatives. Young scholars complete a related chart.
Middle schoolers explore the concept of ordering rational numbers on a number line. They represent rational numbers as decimals and percents. Pupils create a foldable about converting fractions to decimals to percents, and use a calculator and number line to order rational numbers.
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.
Introduce decimals to your fourth grade class with a worksheet 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.
