This poster gives students the opportunity to consider everything they know about decimal fractions and demonstrate their understanding of its relationship with fractions.

Students begin by rolling a 6 sided die three or more times and creating a decimal fraction that is > 1 but < 3 (e.g 1.25). They then complete the following tasks:

  • write their number using words
  • write their number using numerals
  • use their number to complete a true 'less than' statement (e.g. 1.08 < 1.25)
  • locate relative position of their number on a number line
  • create three or more additional decimal numbers using their original digits and order them (e.g. 1.25, 1.52, 2.15, 2.15)
  • represent their number as a mixed numeral
  • partition their number using decimals and/or fractions (e.g. 1 + 0.2 + 0.05 or 1 + 2/10 + 5/100)
  • represent their number using the area model by dividing the wholes into tenths and hundredths
