This Decimal Sort Game
will build fluency for word form, unit form, and expanded form for decimal numbers in a fun and exciting way!
Each student is given a unique game mat and a deck of 16 fraction cards. Students must match them with the correct decimal in standard form.
✓64.6 (standard form)
✓sixty-four and six tenths (word form)
✓6 tens 4 ones and 6 tenths (unit form)
✓60 + 4 + 0.6 (expanded from A)
✓(6 x 10) + (4 x 1) + (6 x 1/10) (expanded form B)
All the cards within a deck have same numerals in order to push students to think through place value of each digit (not just the numeral). For example 64.6 is in the same deck as 60.46, 640.6, and 6.046. This prevents students from using other coping strategies to find a match.

⇒12 Decks of 16 Decimal Cards (192 total cards)
