Name that Decimal!
Teach decimals using these “hands-on” activities, while making integrating technology into your math lesson a breeze! Included are:
• PowerPoint Presentation
• (2) Keynote Presentations
• Name the Decimal Worksheet
Introduce decimals with models. A keynote presentation is included for you to project decimal models (hundredths/tenths). Edit to meet your needs, as you model for your students all they need to know about decimals. Introduce tenths and hundredths as decimals, fractions, and percents. Manipulate the models to demonstrate whole numbers, mixed numbers, decimals, fractions, and percents. This is a great tool to use, especially when comparing decimals and mixed numbers using models.
The PowerPoint presentation serves to support your introductory lesson. It asks students to use models to read and write decimals (tenths and hundredths). It is meant to be presented as a whole class activity, with students reading decimal models (tenths and hundredths), and writing the correct decimal and fraction for the model presented on their whiteboards (or paper and pencil). The decimals and fractions then appear on the screen, to serve as the check.
The Keynote presentation uses “Magic Move” animation to engage your students in their learning. The “Student” Keynote (unsorted; without “Magic Move” animation), is meant to be “air dropped” to either student computers or iPads. Students then “click and drag” to label the decimal models. A duplicate presentation, the “Teacher Key” is to be projected, and used for directions and serves as the answer key. Once all students have completed their independent activity, the teacher sets the projected “Magic Move” into motion, and serves as the check.
A worksheet is also provided, to serve as a follow-up activity to either assess, use as classwork, or homework. Answer Key included.
These interactive lessons make learning decimals fun, easy, and best of all, low prep!
