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?").
Challenge your fifth graders with a worksheet on rounding decimals. Each section provides three columns of decimals and a space for pupils to round them to the nearest tenth. This makes a nice homework assignment, or a timed in-class test.
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. 
Challenge your fifth graders with this decimals activity, which prompts them to subtract decimals to the hundredth and thousandth places. After writing the differences for the first 16 problems, they solve ten problems written in a horizontal format. Helpful for practicing subtraction and money math as well.
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!
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.
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.
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.
How well can your fourth graders convert fractions to decimals - or decimals to fractions? Drill your young mathematicians on this skill, as well as understanding place value and mixed numbers. A great quiz after your fractions unit, or a useful homework assignment before a big test.
An efficient and straightforward decimals worksheet! Young learners round amounts of money and measurements to the nearest dollar or meter. Each section contains 20 problems, making it easy to divide up this asignment into several lessons. Additionally, you could assign these problems as a formative assessment before moving on in your decimals unit.
Learners solve word problems using number sense. They convert fractions to decimals and mixed numbers. Pupils determine if a given fraction is greater or less than another fraction, and order numbers on a number line.
Students compare percents. In this percents lesson, students define what percents measure and how to find a percentage from a fraction or decimal. Students practice this skill by completing a page in their text book.
Practice dividing decimals with your math class. They will review long division skills and review how to move the decimal place during division. Then they complete worksheets to demonstrate their comprehension of this skill.
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. 
Learners insert the comparison symbols between numbers containing decimals. Answers are not provided.
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.
Drill decimal multiplication with scholars using 30 practice problems. Each equation includes one single-digit whole number and one three-digit number with a decimal to the tenths place. They solve for each product, regrouping numbers as necessary. There are three examples to get them started. None of these problems are numbered, so consider numbering them before copying to make review easier.
Ordering decimals is different from ordering whole numbers, but your scholars will get the hang of it after assorting 17 sets of numbers from least to greatest. The numbers all have decimals to the hundreds place, so they use knowledge of place value to determine the orders. Some of these are tricky; remind scholars to look at the whole number as well as the decimal to avoid silly mistakes. 
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. 
Move that decimal up into the quotient! Mathematicians practice long division with three-digit dividends that have decimals to the hundredths place. All the divisors are single-digit numbers, and there are two examples demonstrating the process. There are no irrational quotients. Consider numbering the problems before copying to make review simpler.
