I've created 24 task cards for adding and subtracting decimals and whole numbers. This is a mixture of all different possibilities. The goal of this activity is to get the kids in the mindset of lining up number by their place values!
This set comes with grid paper and an answer sheet for students to record their answers.
*These cards could be used the whole group or in small groups.
1. Write numbers down, then HIGHLIGHT the decimal point. (This should be one straight line)
2. Fill in empty spaces to the right of the decimal with zeros as placeholders.
3. Add or Subtract as asked, and don't forget to bring the decimal down!
