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.
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.
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.
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.
A rational number is a ratio of two integers. Discuss with your class how to convert the rational numbers of repeating decimals to fractions. A good commentary on letting x equal the repeating decimal and multiplying each side of such equation by a power of 10 or 10r, where r is the repeating segment.
Which decimal is greater? Learners start by comparing eight pairs of decimals, writing in the symbol (> or
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 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. 
Students access prior knowledge of long division and multiplying decimals.  For this dividing decimals lesson, students view a demonstration of how to move decimals when dividing.  Students complete a dividing decimals worksheet. Students compare decimals to fractions.
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.
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. 
Explore the practical uses of adding numbers with decimals as scholars add measurements and money. The first 12 equations are written vertically with half the sums requiring a dollar sign and half a unit of measurement. The next six are written horizontally, also with specific units. There are two word problems, one involving 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.

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.
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.
Learners insert the comparison symbols between numbers containing decimals. Answers are not provided.
These fractions need to be converted to decimals, but no calculator is needed. Scholars examine two examples which explain the process briefly before completing 16 fractions with denominators of either 10 or 100. For the next section they convert more complex fractions using long division, again with an example as guidance. Connect this concept tangibly using money: What is one-quarter of a dollar? Learners will quickly begin using these familiar concepts to help them grasp these more complicated ideas.
In this comparing worksheet, students compare decimals and percents.  They identify the largest and smallest number in a dequence.  This one-page worksheet contains 10 multiple-choice problems.  Answers are provided.
What is the place value of the digit 5? Explore decimals to the ten-thousandths place with these place value identification problems. For the first eight, pupils write down the place of a specific digit in various numbers. Next, scholars choose from three numbers given information about which digit is in which place. Finally, learners determine how much greater one number is than a number very close to it. There are examples for some of these to guide young mathematicians. Challenge them to think about what the next place value might be.
