1. These Lesson Plans explain different ways to read, write, and represent decimals. These representations include drawing a picture, using a number line, using words, using a place value chart, using the expanded decimal form, using the expanded fraction form, as decimal fractions, and by using base-ten pieces.
2. Students will practice breaking decimals into a sum of smaller parts. For example:
0.35 = 1 tenth plus 25 hundredths.
3. Students will model fractions in tenths and find the equivalent fraction in hundredths. For example:
4/10 = 40/100
4. Students will add fractions with the denominators of tenths and hundredths in various ways. For example:
2/10 + 22/100 =
22 hundredths + 2 tenths =
5. Fourth grade students work with decimals to the hundredths place.
6. These Lesson Plans include templates that allow teachers to modify and create additional practice problems for students.
