Product Description
Through a series of warm up problems, guided notes, and worksheets, this unit addresses basic multiplication of decimals, exponents, order of operations problems, and multiplication word problems. Yes, it IS all right here! The warm up sheets contain thought-provoking questions to pique student interest. The scaffolded notes are stimulating and serve as an easy method for teachers to provide notes and guided practice. The math “poetry”, which is also included, increases students’ level of engagement and further cements concepts. The two well-thought-out worksheets focus on the basics of multiplication, but also on usage of exponents, order of operations involving multiplication, addition and subtraction, and word problems. If you are looking for an easy-to-teach, comprehensive method to cover multiplication of decimals completely, this is the product for you!

Note 1: This product can also be purchased as part of a Complete Decimals Unit, but has been broken off as a separate product for those who would like to focus specifically on multiplication of decimals. Those wishing to conduct a comprehensive decimals unit should purchase the Complete Decimals Unit: It's All Right Here product instead.

Note 2: This product assumes the students have some prior knowledge of decimal place value, ordering decimals, using decimals in addition and subtraction problems, and evaluating order of operations problems with whole numbers. The teacher may need to do some review of these concepts prior to the start of this unit.

This product is broken into two different sets of warm-ups, notes, and worksheets. The first set begins with simple problems (0.6 • 0.7, for instance) to establish appropriate placement of the decimal point in the product, then moves up to 2-digit by 2-digit and 3-digit by 2-digit multiplication and word problems. The second set incorporates exponents and concludes with problems with more than one operation in them (which serves not only as a review of order of operations but also as a review of addition and subtraction of decimals).

This is the ideal comprehensive multiplying decimals product for late elementary or early middle school. Feel free to review the preview file for details on all parts of this product.

Good luck in your use of Multiplying Decimals – It’s All Right Here!
