1 Unit 6 Number and Operations in Base Ten: Decimals Introduction Students will extend the place value system to decimals. They will apply their understanding of models for decimals and decimal notation, and they will extend their knowledge to comparing, adding, and subtracting multi-digit numbers. Students will also multiply fractions and decimals by whole numbers. There is some confusion in naming decimal fractions. We use the convention that 1/, for example, is one hundredth, not one onehundredth. When this causes confusion, as in 350/1,000 (three hundred fifty thousandths) compared to 300/50,000 (three hundred fifty thousandths), always clarify by showing the fraction you are referring to. Note that 350/1,000 would be confused with 300/51,000 if we did read the one in one-thousandths, therefore doing so would not eliminate the confusion. Another way to avoid confusion is to not shorten decimal point to decimal. Shortening to decimal creates confusion between two different concepts: decimal (a number) and decimal point (the symbol separating parts of the number). Make sure students use proper terminology.

2 NBT5-38 Introduction to Decimals Pages STANDARDS preparation for 5.NBT.A.1, 5.NBT.A.3 Goals Students will use decimal notation for fractions with denominators and, place decimal hundredths on number lines, and order decimal hundredths using a number line. Vocabulary decimal notation decimal point equivalent decimals hundreds hundredths ones place value tens tenths PRIOR KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED Knows that, on number lines, greater whole numbers appear to the right of lesser whole numbers Can name fractions from area models and number lines MATERIALS BLM Hundredths Number Lines (p. G-62) Introduce decimal tenths. Tell students that the fraction 1/ can be represented in various ways. Show three ways on the board: Point out that each way means 1 part out of equal parts. Tell students that mathematicians have invented an even easier way to write one tenth, called decimal notation. Show this on the board: 1 = 0.1 SAY: The dot is called a decimal point. Mathematicians use decimal notation because it takes up less space on the page and is easier to write. Ask volunteers to show how they would write 2 tenths as a decimal (0.2), 3 tenths (0.3), and other numbers up to 9 tenths (0.9). SAY: The 0 before the decimal point tells you that the number is less than 1. Representing decimal tenths on a number line. Draw a number line from 0 to 1, and ask students to place various decimal tenths on the number line. (0.8, 0.5, 0.2, 0.7) Exercises: Write the decimal for each marked point. 0 1 Answers: 0.3, 0.4, 0.9 Representing decimal tenths using pictures. Draw various shapes, such as circles, squares, or rectangles, and have volunteers represent various numbers given in decimal notation by shading the pictures. G-2 Teacher s Guide for AP Book 5.1

3 a) 0.2 b) 0.3 c) 0.5 d) 0.6 Writing decimal notation for pictures. Now ask students to do the reverse. Exercises: Write the decimal for the picture. a) b) c) d) Answers: a) 0.8, b) 0.7, c) 0.5, d) 0.8 Introduce decimal hundredths. Tell students that the fraction 1/ can also be represented in various ways. Show four ways on the board: 1 one hundredth 0.01 Point out how a hundredth is written differently from a tenth: there are two digits after the decimal point instead of only one. Ask a volunteer to show how they would write two hundredths as a decimal (0.02) and then read it as zero point zero two. ASK: How would you write three hundredths as a decimal? (0.03). Exercises: Write the fraction as a decimal. a) 9 b) 4 c) 8 Answers: a) 0.09, b) 0.04, c) 0.08, d) 0.07, e) 0.05 d) 7 e) 5 Writing equivalent tenths and hundredths as fractions and decimals. Draw on the board: = ASK: How many tenths are shaded? (3) Fill in the first numerator. SAY: Each column is one tenth, and three of them are shaded. ASK: How many hundredths are shaded? (30) PROMPT: How many hundredths are in each column? () So there are, 20, 30 hundredths shaded. Fill in the second numerator. ASK: How would you write 3 tenths as a decimal? (0.3) How would you write 30 hundredths as a decimal? (0.30) Write on the board: Number and Operations in Base Ten 5-38 G-3

4 0.3 = 0.30 SAY: These decimals are called equivalent decimals because one decimal equals the other decimal, just as equivalent fractions equal each other. Exercises: Write two equivalent fractions and two equivalent decimals for the amount shaded. a) b) c) d) Answers: a) 5/ = 50/ = 0.5 = 0.50, b) 2/ = 20/ = 0.2 = 0.20, c) 7/ = 70/ = 0.7 = 0.70, d) 4/ = 40/ = 0.4 = 0.40 Using a picture to show a combination of tenths and hundredths. Draw the first picture below on the board. ASK: How many hundredths are shaded? (30) How many tenths are shaded? (3) Then shade two more hundredths. ASK: Now how many hundredths are shaded? (32) Summarize by saying that 32 hundredths equals 3 tenths and 2 more hundredths. Write on the board: 32 hundredths = 3 tenths + 2 hundredths Exercises: Describe the fraction shaded as hundredths, and as tenths and hundredths. Bonus a) b) c) d) Answers: a) 64 hundredths = 6 tenths + 4 hundredths, b) 47 hundredths = 4 tenths + 7 hundredths, Bonus: c) 85 hundredths = 8 tenths + 5 hundredths, d) 86 hundredths = 8 tenths + 6 hundredths Comparing dimes and pennies to tenths and hundredths. Write the decimals 0.2 and 0.17 on the board and ask students to say which decimal is greater and why they think so. Some students may think that 0.17 is greater than 0.2 because 17 is greater than 2. Tell students that they may find it easier to compare decimals that represent tenths and hundredths if they think of the decimals as representing amounts of money. Write on the board: $0.56 = 56 cents = 5 dimes and 6 pennies G-4 Teacher s Guide for AP Book 5.1

5 SAY: We use decimal notation for money because a dime is a tenth of a dollar and a penny is a hundredth of a dollar. Write on the board: 0.56 = 56 hundredths = 5 tenths + 6 hundredths ASK: How many hundredths are in 0.7? (70) Write on the board: 0.7 = 0.70 = 70 hundredths = 7 tenths 0 hundredths Exercises: Write the amount as hundredths and as mixed units (tenths and hundredths). a) 0.34 b) 0.68 c) 0.90 d) 0.5 Answers: a) 34 hundredths = 3 tenths + 4 hundredths, b) 68 hundredths = 6 tenths + 8 hundredths, c) 90 hundredths = 9 tenths + 0 hundredths, d) 50 hundredths = 5 tenths + 0 hundredths Now write 0.73 on the board and challenge students to write the decimal in four different ways using the terms tenths, hundredths, dimes, and pennies. Answer: 7 dimes 3 pennies, 7 tenths 3 hundredths, 73 pennies, 73 hundredths Exercises: Write the amount in three more ways. a) 8 dimes 5 pennies b) 0 dimes 6 pennies c) 9 dimes 0 pennies Answers: a) 8 tenths 5 hundredths, 85 pennies, 85 hundredths; b) 0 tenths 6 hundredths, 6 pennies, 6 hundredths; c) 9 tenths 0 hundredths, 90 pennies, 90 hundredths Now ask students to compare the decimals 0.2 and Students should see that 0.2 is greater than 0.17 because 2 dimes is greater than 1 dime and 7 pennies. Another way to compare decimals such as 0.2 and 0.17 or 0.3 and 0.25 is to think about how many hundredths are in the decimals. ASK: How many hundredths are in 0.3? (30, because 3/ is the same fraction as 30/) How many hundredths are in 0.25? (25) So 0.3 is greater than 0.25, because 30 hundredths is more than 25 hundredths. Tell students that they can change a decimal written in tenths to one written in hundredths by adding a zero to the decimal: Examples: 0.4 = 0.40 Four tenths is the same as forty hundredths. 0.9 = 0.90 Nine tenths is the same as ninety hundredths. Exercises: Write both decimals as hundredths. Which one is greater? a) 0.5 and 0.42 b) 0.6 and 0.78 c) 0.3 and 0.05 Answers: a) 0.50 > 0.42, b) 0.60 < 0.78, c) 0.30 > 0.05 Relate tenths and hundredths to place value. Tell students that just like there is a ones place and a tens place in whole numbers, there is a tenths place and a hundredths place in decimals. Show this on the board: Number and Operations in Base Ten 5-38 G-5

Display a table with the headings decimal fractions (with examples such as 5/, 4/, 3/, 425/1,000) and not decimal fractions (with examples such as 1/2, 2/5, 4/17, 9/20, 289/3,000). Have volunteers suggest additional fractions for the table, and have the rest of the class signal in which group each fraction should be placed. Have students guess the rule for putting the fractions in each group. NOTE: Do not use decimal notation until the next lesson. Focus on the concept of a decimal fraction. Number and Operations in Base Ten 5-39 G-7

8 Explain that a decimal fraction is a fraction whose denominator is a power of. Decimal fractions are important because powers of are easy to work with. Point out that while some of the denominators in the not decimal fractions group are multiples of, they are not powers of. Also, some fractions (such as 1/2 and 2/5) are equivalent to decimal fractions but they are not decimal fractions. Review equivalent tenths and hundredths. Draw the two squares on the board. SAY: The picture shows why 3/ equals 3/. The second square has times as many shaded parts and times as many parts altogether. Write on the board: 3 = 30 Exercises: Write an equivalent fraction with denominator.

Have students list at least five decimal numbers that each take exactly six words to say. Make it clear to students that two words joined by a hyphen count as one word (e.g., fifty-eight is one word). This exercise gives students practice writing number words for decimals, being organized, and looking for patterns. Sample answers: 600, six hundred thousand and forty-three hundredths 9,000, nine million eighty and nine hundredths 2. Teach students to interpret large whole numbers written in decimal format and words. For example, 5.1 million is 5,,000; 3.7 thousand is 3,700. Number and Operations in Base Ten 5-41 G-17

18 3. Point out the symmetry in the place values around the ones position. For example, in the number 27, , some of the place values are as follows: hundreds tens ones tenths hundredths Challenge students to name the place values in the number by using this symmetry. (ones, tenths, hundredths, thousandths, ten-thousandths, hundred-thousandths, millionths) NOTE: Some students might look for a oneths position, from thinking of the decimal point as the center of symmetry. This might seem natural because the decimal point is the only part of the number that looks different. However, ones are the basic units and in fact are the basis for the symmetry. 4. Add whole numbers, tenths, and hundredths. Example: = Have students look for decimals greater than 1 in the media and write the decimals as mixed numbers. Students can clip out examples of decimals in headlines and article text from newspapers and discuss how and where big numbers are used. G-18 Teacher s Guide for AP Book 5.1

20 Answers: Parts b) and d) are incorrect: in part b), the numerator should be 5 or the decimal should be 0.50; in part d), the denominator should be or the decimal should be Review decimal fractions in lowest terms. Remind students what it means for a fraction to be in lowest terms. ASK: Is 6/9 in lowest terms? (no, because 6 and 9 both divide by 3, so you can reduce the fraction): 6 = Is 2/3 in lowest terms? (yes, because the only whole number that divides both 2 and 3 is 1) Remind students that when you divide a power of by a smaller power of, you remove as many zeros from the dividend as there are in the divisor, for example,,000 = 1,000. Exercises: Divide. a) 1,000 b),000 c),000 Bonus: 1,000 1,000 Answers: a), b), c),000, Bonus: 1 SAY: Suppose I want to reduce the fraction /1,000 to lowest terms. ASK: Will my answer be in lowest terms if I divide the numerator and denominator by? Demonstrate what happens when you divide by : = ASK: Is the result in lowest terms? (no, because you can divide the numerator and denominator by again) 1 = What number should we have divided by, rather than? () Ask students to say what number they would divide by to reduce the following fractions to lowest terms:, 000 Students should notice the following: if the numerator and denominator of a fraction are both powers of, then when you divide both by the smaller power of, the resulting fraction is in lowest terms. Ask students to show how they would reduce the fractions above: 1 = = = 1 and so on. 1 NOTE: Many people reduce decimal fractions by crossing out an equal number of zeros in the numerator and denominator: = = 1 G-20 Teacher s Guide for AP Book 5.1

21 Students can use this method, but they should be able to explain why it works. In the example, you cross out two zeros in the numerator and two zeros in the denominator because to reduce the fraction you divide both by. Multiplying by powers of. Remind students that when you multiply a fraction by a whole number, you multiply the numerator by the whole number and leave the denominator the same: = = 3 2 = Exercises: Find the product and reduce your answer to lowest terms. a) 1 b) 1,000 1 c) 1 d),000 1 Answers: a), b) 1, c) 1, d) 1 1, Ask students say how they could find the products above mentally. They should be able to articulate the following kind of strategy: 1 There are 2 zeros in the whole number. There are 3 zeros in the fraction. 1 There will be 3 2 = 1 zero left in the 2 zeros 3 zeros denominator, so the answer is 1. Make sure that students know that if there are more zeros in the whole number than in the fraction, the answer will be a whole number. Also note for students that any number divided by 1 is the same number. Exercises: Solve the puzzle. 1 1 a) = b) 1 d) 1, 000 = 1 Answers: a), b), c) 1,000, d) = 1 c) 1, 000 = 1 Comparing place values. Students are now prepared to compare place values. Use the following steps to show them how. ASK: How many times as large as is? Step 1: If any of the numbers you are comparing are decimals, write them as fractions: = Step 2: ASK: What number do you need to multiply the smaller number by to produce the larger number? Solve the problem by writing an expression as shown below: 1 1? = so,000 = Number and Operations in Base Ten 5-42 G-21

22 Exercises: How many times as large as the smaller number is the larger number? Show your work. a) 0.1 and 0.01 b) 0.01 and c) and 0.01 d) and Answers: a), b), c) 1,000, d),000 Remind students that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents times as much as it represents in the place to its immediate right and 1/ of what it represents in the place to its immediate left. Students can use this knowledge to compare digits that are farther apart. Example: In the number , how many times as much as the 3 on the right is the 3 on the left? Step 1: Write the value of each 3. The first (left) 3 has value 30 and the second (right) 3 has value. Step 2: Write an expression and find the missing number in the box.? 3 = 30 so 3 = 30 Students can also compare place values by using the following diagram: hundreds tens ones tenths hundredths thousandths Exercise: In the number , how many times as large as the value of the 7 on the right is the value of the 7 on the left? Answer: The first 7 is 4 place values to the left of the second 7: so the value of the 7 on the left is =,000 times as large as the value of the 7 on the right. Review writing decimals in expanded form. Write on the board: = 8 tenths + 3 hundredths + 7 thousandths = Tell students that writing like this as a sum of decimal fractions is writing it in expanded form.
