An efficient and straightforward decimals learning exercise! 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.
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!
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.
Middle schoolers examine how to add and subtract numbers in different forms. They observe and participate in a guided lesson that focuses on adding and subtracting fractions, equivalent fractions and reducing to lowest terms, comparing and ordering fractions, and adding fractions with the lowest common denominators.
Represent, order, and compare rational numbers in order to practice placing them on a number line. Your class will use appropriate operations, methods, and tools to compute with real numbers. Then they must explain completely and clearly what was done and why it was done.
Upper graders visually compare fraction parts using manipulatives and order fractions from smallest to largest. They use 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/8, 1/12, and 1/16. As the teacher reads the story, "Pizza Counting," students use their manipulative fraction pieces to demonstrate what is being read to them in the story. A good, solid lesson!
