How to Use This Course
The Decimal Workshop is designed to help parents teach students through examples and practice problems. It is a great review unit for an elementary math class and can be done at the student’s own pace.
In this unit, students apply their existing understanding of place value with whole numbers to decimal numbers through the thousandths place. This includes reading and writing decimal numbers, models of decimal amounts, comparing decimals, and rounding decimals. Students also learn to break a decimal number into expanded form to demonstrate the value of each digit. Students learn to add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to the hundredths place using the standard algorithms. Students also learn the fraction equivalents for decimal numbers and to convert between forms with fluency.
