The real value of education is highlighted in more than one way on a worksheet designed to not only add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, but also to address the correlation between higher pay with accomplishing higher levels of education. The chart on the student worksheet shows the weekly income of four people with varying amounts of education completed. The three follow-up questions ask 5th graders to compare and find the difference between the incomes. Although a lesson plan is not included, the commentary and solutions page gives teachers the relevant information necessary to incorporate the activity in the classroom.
Students explore multiplying and dividing decimals. After a teacher demonstration of multiplying and dividing decimal numerals, students model selected problems. Next, they translate word problems involving percents to division or multiplication equations. As an explanation of their work, students create models of the equations.
Dividing decimals is not hard, but one has to know how to manipulate the decimal point in order to achieve correct answers. In this math presentation, learners are taken through the process step-by-step in a clear and concise fashion. Many practice problems appear in the slides. The last slide gives them a chance to round decimals to the nearest tenth.
Sixth graders create note cards to divide multi-digit whole numbers by two-digit numbers and divide decimals that represent money by whole numbers in a simpler and faster fashion. They write the rules and examples of each on the cards and complete a worksheet using the rules on the cards to solve the division problems. Very well done!
Have your class observe and demonstrate how to multiply and divide decimals. They observe the teacher model examples of dividing and multiplying decimals, and independently complete a worksheet. They identify any patterns they observe and discussing the answers as a class.
Children explore how to divide multi-digit whole numbers by 2-digit numbers. They divide decimals by whole numbers. They discuss the rules for dividing and use a division acronym to practice long division. A practice worksheet is included that looks at real-world scenarios involving dogs, marine biologists and McDonald's burgers.
Ninth graders explore multiplying and dividing integers. They take notes as the teacher demonstrates multiplying and dividing decimal numbers. They practice converting between decimals and fractions. After guided practice by the teacher, 9th graders practice dividing and multiplying integers and rounding off answers to the appropriate place value.
The narrator or teacher is not visible in this five-minute white-board-style video. Step by step, she reviews place value and the location of a decimal in the example 15.257. Then she writes a few numbers in expanded form. Finally, she demonstrates how to move the decimal to the left when dividing decimals.
