This set of 24 problems is an engaging activity for students to practice converting and understanding the relationship between fractions and decimals (tenths and hundredths). To make this activity more engaging, students will roll dice to generate numbers for the various problems. Students will answer problems where they must do the following...
1. See how fractions with denominators of 10 can be equivalent to fractions with denominators of 100, and in turn add fractions with these different denominators.
2. They will convert fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions. 3. They will represent decimals on a number line and using models.
4. They will also compare decimals to the hundredths.
And much more!
This product is aligned to the following state standards:
Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions.
Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100.2 For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.
Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.
Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.
I hope you and your students find this resource engaging and beneficial! Please remember to leave feedback!
