In Decimals Using LEGO® Bricks—Student Edition, Dr. Shirley Disseler has developed activities that work to help students learn about measurement, using a common toy available in most classrooms and homes—LEGO® bricks!

The ability to understand and interpret decimals is an important life skill. But students often struggle with decimals in the same way that they struggle with fractions. Modeling decimals with LEGO® bricks helps students successfully visualize and prove the relationships between decimals and fractions, decimals and place value, and decimals and number operations.

In this book, the hands-on activities using LEGO® bricks help students learn:

• ordering decimals

• fraction equivalents of decimals

• money and time as real-life applications of decimals

• adding decimals

• subtracting decimals

• multiplying decimals

• dividing decimals

• linking decimals, fractions, and percentages

The book starts at the most basic concepts and focuses on a specific topic in each chapter. Most students learn about decimals between grades 4 - 6.

Using LEGO® bricks to model math provides a universal language. Children everywhere recognize this manipulative. It’s fun to learn when you’re using LEGO® bricks!
