Have students extend their basic understanding of multiplying decimals by completing these word problems as test prep or a cumulative review of the chapter.
These problems align with CCRS standards 5.NBT.2 and 5.NBT.7 as well as Go Math! Grade 5 Chapter 4- Multiply Decimals.
So what does this have to do with BANANAS?
I plan on providing banana flavored popsicles for students who complete all problems with 2 or less errors and banana flavored Laffy Taffy's for those who need to correct more than 3 problems.
This also helps you determine who needs more practice in this area!
