### Description

Basics of Decimals - Place Value, Modeling, Comparing, Ordering, Rounding, and Estimating: 5 page visual "doodle notes" set -

When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!

Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on. Graphic doodle and sketch notes take full advantage of Dual Coding Theory (the way brains process visual and linguistic information) to maximize retention.

Content includes:
- place value review
- reading and saying decimal numbers out loud
- modeling decimal numbers on a grid
- comparing and ordering
- rounding (how to round as well as concept and real-world examples)
- estimating with decimals (including real-world examples)
- estimating by rounding, compatible numbers, front-end estimation, and clustering
- which is better: estimate versus exact
- practice and examples

Visual note taking strategies like sketch notes or doodle notes are based on dual coding theory.  When we can blend the text input with graphic/visual input, the student brain processes the information differently and can more easily convert the new learning into long-term memory.

This strategy also integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain to increase focus, learning, and retention!
