Magical Pumpkin Patch Math: Multiplying Decimals with Whole Numbers
This is a fun interactive Smartboard lesson in which students will learn how to calculate the price of a pumpkin for Halloween. There are 3 easy steps.
Step 1: Students will learn the price per pound by dragging the magnifying glass over the sign in the pumpkin patch. Then, they will need to write the price per pound in decimal form in the box provided.
Step 2: Students will reveal the weight of the pumpkin by dragging the magnifying glass over the pumpkin. They will write the weight of the pumpkin in the box provided.
Step 3: Students will calculate the price of the pumpkin by multiplying the price per pound by the weight of the pumpkin. Then, they are reminded to make sure that they have put the decimal point in the correct place.
Students can also be encouraged to work the problems at their own seats either on paper or on their individual white boards if they have them.
