Product Description
Everywhere you look you will find decimals. The odometer in the family car measures off miles and tenths of a mile. In a machine shop you use and instrument called a micrometer which measures items in tenths, hundredths, and thousandths of an inch. Batting averages for baseball players are given in decimals. Your body temperature is expressed in whole degrees and tenths of a degree. Measurements in scientific work are given in decimals.
But by far the most use you personally make of decimals is in money. Your paycheck, your grocery bill, your bank account will all include decimals. Therefore my emphasis in this booklet will be on the use of decimals in money.
The booklet will also include work related to percents and the application of percent to problems we are likely to come up against in day-to-day living.
Many common cores standards will be met after completing this booklet. Puzzles, Real Life activities, and test yourself activities as well a solution manual is provided.
