Looking at factual information about annual precipitation
This worksheet combines reading a factual chart with performing addition and subtraction of decimals.
Skills practiced with this activity are:
*Using a chart/table to access information
*Adding decimal numbers
*Subtracting decimal numbers
*Comparison of decimal numbers
*Factual information about average annual precipitation in 10 US cities.
Common Core Standards this activity helps develop:
Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.
Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36),
