Do your students struggle with decimal place value? Do you want them to be able to show a deeper understanding? Then this simple, but effective product is for you. Using this "work-it-out sheet", students will model decimals four different ways:
1) converting decimals to fractions
2) modeling decimals as money
3) using a place value chart (which the students draw themselves for maximum learning)
4) model with a "decimal square" (place value blocks)
This product has four pages. The first two pages are just for modeling in the four ways for use when your are introducing decimals, and the other two sheets are comparing decimals in four ways. This is a great product to encourage perseverance and finding solutions to math problems in multiple ways.
