Students represent decimals in different ways: “Show, don’t tell” can be used by writers and by math students. Rather than tell what they know about decimals, students can SHOW their mathematical understanding using multiple representations. This activity can be used for whole group practice, small group instruction, independent practice, part of a math center, or as a formative assessment piece. This activity can be used to reinforce that there are multiple ways to SHOW decimals.
All you need is this download and a number cube and students are set to start SHOWING how to represent decimals in multiple ways!
Students show their work on a recording sheet. Different versions of the recording sheet are included. One version can be used for practice in a group setting, another version includes a Student Checklist for students to self reflect on their learning, and a third version includes a 5 point rubric.
This activity supports CCSS 5.NBT.3a. This activity can be used to differentiate instruction for fourth graders ready to learn decimals. Sixth grade students may benefit from this activity to remediate, review, or reinforce key decimal concepts.
Varying the place value used is one way to differentiate learning for different readiness levels. In this download, you will get differentiated decimal cards by color: tenths, hundredths, and thousandths.
