Use the additional resources (quiz, activities, fyi) or continue on to Step 2.
2 Direct Instruction
Use the Lesson Set from LearnZillion entitled "Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100"
to further instruct this standard. Teacher should pause the videos at appropriate intervals to model sample problems and elicit student comments, questions.
3 Independent Practice
Using previously created student accounts, students log in and complete 10 items in each of the following tasks:
Fractions: Denominator of 10 or 100
Decimal Notation and Fractions
Teacher monitor live progress and offer direct instruction/reteaching as needed to a small group or one:one.
If iPads are available, students who demonstrate mastery of the TenMarks tasks can create their own video tutorial with sample questions using ShowMe. Completed videos can be uploaded to the class account and viewed by the teacher and classmates for further study.

Number And Operations—Fractions
Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100.4 For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.
Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.
