Converting Fractions to Decimals
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.
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.
Looking for 60 opportunities for scholars to practice rounding decimals to the nearest whole number? You've found it! These problems are split into three sections based on the total number of digits in the number. The first section has 20 two-digit numbers, the second section has 20 three-digit numbers, and the last section has 20 four-digit numbers. These digits all include decimals, which only extend to the tenths place for all numbers. Learners can use three completed examples as reference. Consider numbering the exercise before copying to make review smoother.
Line Up (Comparing and Ordering Fractions, Decimals, and Whole Numbers)
Students order numbers using a number line. In this algebra lesson, students identify numbers from last to greatest and from greatest to least. They convert between fractions, decimals and whole numbers to compare their value on a number line.
Fraction and Decimal Practice
Learners complete a set of 26 fraction division problems, reducing to lowest terms, 25 decimal subtraction problems and 31 problems converting decimals to percents, or percents to decimals.
Adding and Subtracting Decimals
In this adding and subtracting decimals worksheet, students add and subtract numbers with decimals in word problems. Students complete 12 word problems.
Fourth graders play a game that reinforce their knowledge of fractions, decimals and mixed numbers. You may choose to use as an activity when work is completed or as a center activity.
Fraction and Decimal Ordering
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.
Second graders compare and order numbers. They use blocks as manipulatives to accommodate kinesthetic learners. Students work to put numbers into chronological order in groups for the purpose of scaffolding the activity.
Student Exploration: modeling decimals
In this decimals learning exercise, students use the computer program Gizmo to complete decimal word problems. Students complete 15 problems.
Pupils play a math game. In this decimals and fractions lesson plan, they use base ten blocks to practice converting between decimals and fractions. Everyone plays a game called Decimal War to practice these concepts.
Comparing and Ordering Decimals - Complete Lesson Plan
Base ten blocks serve as visual representations of numbers that include decimals to the hundredths place. Children compare and order decimals in their math journal as they build the corresponding numbers with base ten blocks.
Using Decimal Benchmarks
Students demonstrate some common operations done while using fractions based upon mathematical standards. They are also changing common fractions to decimals with estimation skills and the use of a calculator.
Ordering Fractions and Decimals with use of Origami
Fifth graders play a game using origami cubes with fractions and decimals written on them. For this ordering lesson, 5th graders order the fractions and decimals while earning points for their team.
Ordering Fractions and Decimals with use of Origami
Fifth graders roll cubes and play a game where they decide which cube has the greater value in ordering fractions and decimals. In this fractions and decimals lesson plan, 5th graders order decimals and fractions together.
Patterns in Counting with Decimals
Students, with the assistance of a TI-15 Explorer calculator, connect concrete and symbolic representations of decimal quantities. They study how to recognize patterns in the number symbols while executing the answers to a variety of problem solving equations.
Comparing and Ordering Decimals
Which decimal is greater? Learners start by comparing eight pairs of decimals, writing in the symbol (> or
Practice adding decimals by completing 26 practice problems. Scholars examine two examples before trying these on their own. They add two and three-digit numbers with decimals, regrouping when needed. Not all numbers have decimals, but encourage learners to add a decimal and zeros to line up the two addends. Some decimals reach the thousandths place. This equation set is split with some horizontally aligned and others vertically aligned.
Use this guided set of equations to help scholars add double-digit numbers with decimals. They examine two examples before trying these on their own, many of which require regrouping. All of these have decimals to the hundredths place. The first 10 problems are oriented vertically, however the last 12 are horizontal. Be clear with pupils your expectations with showing work and rewriting problems.
Adding decimals can be simple; show scholars the practical uses of adding numbers with decimals as they add measurements and amounts of money. The first eight equations are written vertically with some sums requiring a dollar sign, some a unit of measurement, and others no unit. The next six are written horizontally, also including specific units. There are two word problems, one to add money and the other length. All of these have decimals to the hundredths place. Extend this concept by bringing in menus from favorite restaurants and having scholars order and add up totals.
