This is a good Common Core question that relates inflation to operations with decimals and rounding. Young learners are asked to find out if an amount of money can purchase the same amount of movie tickets in 2012 as it did in 1987. They then must decide how much more money is needed to purchase the same amount of items. Can be used as a class activity or as an independent assignment.
For this multiplication of decimals worksheet, students begin by reviewing whole number multiplication skills. They multiply whole numbers by decimals. One problem asks students to determine the decimal placement when numbers with like digits, but different decimal values are presented. The final set of problems are word problems that students solve by multiplying decimals.
In this fractions worksheet, students first review addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division without fractions. Next, students add and subtract fractions in fifth-three problems, followed by multiplying in forty-four problems, and dividing with fractions and mixed numbers in fifty-eight problems. Fully worded examples are provided.
Sixth graders demonstrate operations with decimal numbers. In this computation lesson, 6th graders play the game "Diabolical Decimals." The objects of this game is to construct the largest number after rolling a die five times. The students with the largest number wins a point.
Multiplying decimals by 10s, 100s, and 1,000s is easy once a student knows how to manipulate the decimal point. This short presentation covers this exact topic and does a good job of helping to show learners how easy it is to manage the decimal point. A decent presentation.
Students participate in a instructional activity that explores the concept of using multiplication with decimals. They practice using the operation using whole numbers and progress to the use of decimals. The instructional activity includes dialogue for the teacher to use during direct instruction.
Fifth graders identify and generate equivalent forms of fractions, decimals and percents. In the first part of the lesson, they analyze sets of fractions to generalize how various forms of "one" are used to find equivalent fractions. In part two of the lesson students use models to determine equivalency and to convert and compare among fractions, decimals and percents.
