Watch the “Decimals” video on BrainPOP. Answer any questions students may have after watching the video.
3 Direct and Guided Instruction
Use Google Presentation to model how to compare decimals.
- Explain the steps of comparing two decimals (to the thousands).
- Work through several comparisons, modeling the process aloud.
- Work through several comparisons with the entire class, receiving student input and giving feedback.
- Split students into small groups to work through several comparisons together, then discuss the answers as an entire class.
4 Independent Practice
Assign time for students to work through problems related to the lesson individually on Think Through Math. These can be completed during class time or as homework.
Review student data from time spent working problems on Think Through Math. Answer any questions or address any problem areas that students might have during the next lesson.
Key Standards Supported
Number And Operations In Base Ten
Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.
Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.
Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 × (1/100) + 2 × (1/1000).
Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place.
