A worksheet to deepen students’ understanding of decimals.
Assign each student a decimal, or allow the students to choose their own. If you have access to a set of decimal dice, students can roll to get a starting decimal. This is written in the box at the top of the worksheet. Laminate or slide into a dry-erase pocket and use with a dry-erase marker for added longevity.
Students then complete a range of activities to describe their decimal. Activities include:
- identifying a decimal that is less than and greater than their chosen decimal
- identifying an equivalent fraction
- drawing a visual representation
- adding the decimal to a place value chart
- multiplying and dividing the decimal by 10; 100; and 1,000
- rounding the decimal to the nearest whole number, tenth, and hundredth
- adding 1, 0.1, and 0.01 to the decimal.
