Decimal Help This PowerPoint will help you get ready for the test!
Value of a Digit What is the digit in question worth? If it’s a three in the tenths place it’s worth three tenths or 0.3. Write the answer in numerical form. The value of the 9 in is The 9 is in the hundredths spot. 9 X 1 / 100 = 0.09 Practice: Find the value of the underlined numbers
Value of a Digit Answers = = = = 0.004
Writing Decimals Using Expanded Form Find the value of each digit and write it one at a time with an addition sign between each one in expanded form is If you were to add those numbers up you would get Practice: Write the following numbers in regular expanded form
Writing Decimals Using Expanded Form Answers = = = =
Expanded Form Using Multiplication Now that you can do regular expanded form, let’s take it a step further. Take each number and decide what you need to multiply by the base number to make it using multiplication in expanded form multiplication is (9 X 1) + (1 X 1/10) + (8 X 1/100) + (5 X 1/1000) If you were to multiply what’s in each of the parenthesis and add the products together you would get a sum of Practice: Write the following numbers in expanded form multiplication
Expanded Form Using Multiplication Answers = (6 X 10) + (2 X 1) + (7 X 1 / 10 ) + (8 x 1 / 100 ) + (3 X 1 / 1000 ) = (6 X 1) + (5 X 1 / 10 ) + (3 X 1 / 1000 ) = (1 X 1 / 10 ) + (8 X 1 / 100 ) + (5 X 1 / 1000 ) = (4 X 1) + (8 X 1 / 10 ) + (2 X 1 / 100 ) + (5 X 1 / 1000 )
Rounding Decimals Locate the number you’re asked to round to. You’ll have to know place value (location) for this. Then, look to the right. My students like to say, “Five and up bump it up. Four and below let it go.” That saying means if the number to the right is a five or higher you bump the number up one digit. If it’s a four or less, you don’t do anything to it. Leave it alone. Round the number below to the nearest hundredths place The four is in the hundredths place. The one to the right says, “Leave it alone.” So, it stays a 4. The Answer is or 3.24 All the numbers to the left of the hundredths place remain the same. The numbers to the right of the hundredths place become zeroes. Practice: Round the following numbers to the hundredths place
Rounding Decimals Answers = or = or = or = or 51.07
Finding the Place Value of the Digit (Aka Location) In class we did a cheer. We said, “Ones, tenths, hundredths, thousandths.” Practice: Name the location of the underlined digit The 2 is in the hundredths place.
Finding the Place Value of the Digit (Aka Location) Answers = thousandths = tenths = hundredths = hundredths
Writing Numbers in Word Form Read the numbers to the left of the decimal how you would normally read them. When you see the decimal say, “AND.” Read the numbers to the right of the decimal as a group. Then say the last spot’s name is twelve AND four hundred fifty-six thousandths The number 456 is four hundred fifty-six. The last spot is thousandths, so my last word is thousandths. “Last spot last word!” Practice: Write the following numbers in word form
Writing Numbers in Word Form Answers = sixty-seven and fifteen thousandths = five hundred twenty-two and four hundredths = seven hundred seventy-one and seven hundred seventy-one thousandths = eighty-four and ninety-seven hundredths
Comparing Decimals The number one tip I can give you is to line your decimals up then compare the numbers to determine which number is bigger or smaller > They both have sevens, but the tenths place is different. Two is bigger than zero, so 7.2 is the bigger number. “The alligator eats the biggest number.” Practice: Compare the two numbers using, or =

Creating a Base Ten Block Display of a Decimal You need to be able to recreate a base ten block (10 X 10). 58 of the 100 blocks are shaded, so 0.58 is shaded.
Vocabulary to Know Standard Form – A way to write numbers by using the digits 0 – 9, with each digit having a place value. E.g., 456 Expanded Form – A way to write numbers by showing the value of each digit. E.g., 832 = Word Form – A way to write numbers in standard English. E.g., 4,829 = four thousand eight hundred twenty-nine Digit – Any one of the ten symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 used to write numbers.
