    Identify the place value of a decimal

    Lesson presentations and activities

    • This PowerPoint gives examples of the place value of the value in decimal fractions (hundreds, tens, units, tenths, hundredths and thousandths). I created this resource to help my year 6 class understand the value of different digits. The PowerPoint has 2 activities: 1) Write down the place value of an underlined number in a decimal fraction. 2) Increase the value of different decimal fractions. Both activities are covered on the final 2 PowerPoint slides, so these could be printed off and handed out to chn. If you find this a valuable resource, please rate and/or leave a comment.

      This is exactly the kind of resource I have been looking for! Thank you!
      So many resources don't have questions that match what I am trying to cover but this one is perfect. Much appreciated.

      great stuff to get them thinking thanks very much!

    • This is a set of resources I designed for a low ability year 7 group I teach to introduce the concept of decimals and their size and different ways of displaying them. I focus mainly on one and two decimal place numbers. It could lead to work on ordering decimals.
      The student sheet is designed for them to fill in with place value and examples. There is then a shading sheet for tenths and one for hundredths. Finally there are some cards which contain 9 different 1 and 2 decimal place numbers where pupils have to sort into their groups - decimal number version, shaded version (using a 10x10 grid), number line version and a version where the decimal is spelled. This could develop into understanding that, say, 0.4 is larger than 0.18 - a common misconception.
      There is a powerpoint attached that works through all this.
      Happy to send powerpoint in earlier version or the worksheets in word to allow editing if you want.
      Let me know how you get on with them.
      I have a website, which I'm hoping to upload this and other resources. Please keep visiting as it develops and comments, criticisms keenly accepted.

      Very nice worksheet. Thank you for sharing.

      I have used this a couple of times with my private students. It worked well. I like the idea of starting with money because students are used to comparing prices.

      Great resource

    • Match the decimals given in words to the number given in digits. Devices within the puzzle allow students to self monitor their work and correct errors. Students like to finish a puzzle, but they don’t always like the jokes they decode! Each puzzle also supports literacy. Students have to split the string of letters into recognisable words to read the punchline. (answers included). If you like this, search for: Place Value - A pack of decimal and fraction puzzles.

      Keywords: place value, decimals, units, tenths, hundredths, thousandths, puzzle, joke, number system, practice, math, maths joke, mathematics, unlock untangle understand.
