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

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.

Vocabulary decimal decimal fraction decimal point denominator hundredth place value placeholder tenth thousandth PRIOR KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED Knows the definition of a decimal fraction Understands place value for whole numbers and the use of zero as a placeholder Can write expanded form for whole numbers Can write equivalent fractions Can add fractions with like and unlike denominators Review the place value system. Write on the board: 5,834 = 5, SAY: We use place value to write numbers. That means that where a digit is placed in the number tells you its value. Because the digit 5 is in the thousands place, it is worth 5,000. Exercises: What does the digit 7 represent? a) 6,742 b) 9,017 c) 6,572 d) 7,904 Answers: a) 700, b) 7, c) 70, d) 7,000 Point out that the place value system extends to include tenths. Write on the board: thousands hundreds tens ones SAY: The place values get times as big. For example, tens are times as big as ones, hundreds are times as big as tens, and so on. Tell students that you want to continue using the place value system so that you can use place value for fractions, too. ASK: What is 1 ten times as big as? PROMPT: Ten of what make one whole? (a tenth) To guide students, draw pictures of equal parts fitting into 1 whole. Tell students that there is way to show 1/ that uses place value. Write on the board: 1 = = = = 27.4 SAY: We call these numbers decimals. The dot between the whole numbers and the number of tenths is called a decimal point. Decimals are like mixed numbers. Point to 3/ = 0.3 on the board and SAY: There s a wholenumber part to the left of the decimal point and a fractional part to the Number and Operations in Base Ten 5-40 G-11

12 right. However, when the number is less than one whole, we write 0 as the whole-number part. Exercises: Write the decimal for the number. a) 5 b) 3 8 c) 74 6 Answers: a) 0.5, b) 3.8, c) 74.6, Bonus: Bonus Extending the place value system beyond tenths. Write the following sequence on the board: hundreds tens ones tenths ASK: What should the next place value be? (hundredths) PROMPT: Ten of what fit into a tenth? Point out that there is symmetry in the place value names: to some extent, they mirror each other on either side of the ones : hundreds tens ones tenths hundredths SAY: There is also symmetry in the values; in other words, what each place is worth is mirrored on either side of the ones. Draw on the board the picture below. Ask volunteers to continue the place values in both directions Show students how to write decimals for one-digit hundredths and one-digit thousandths: 3 = = SAY: The next place value after tenths is for hundredths. The one after that is for thousandths.

Exercises: Write the decimal in words. a) 0.04 b) 0.8 c) d) 0.07 e) Answers: a) four hundredths, b) eight tenths, c) nine thousandths, d) seven hundredths, e) three thousandths G-12 Teacher s Guide for AP Book 5.1

13 Writing a decimal with more than one non-zero digit. Write on the board: = 9.67 Read the place values in the decimal to show how they correspond to the expanded form: 9 ones, 6 tenths, and 7 hundredths. Tell students that they can say 9.67 out loud as nine point six seven. NOTE: Reading and saying 9.67 as nine point sixty-seven is incorrect and should be discouraged because it can create the misconception that 9.67 is greater than 9.8 (since 67 > 8). Exercises: Write the decimal. a) d) f) b) c) e) Answers: a) 3.49, b) 8.53, c) 6.21, d) 2.759, e) 4.381, f) Using 0 as a placeholder. Write on the board: 3 = = = = Ask a volunteer to write the last decimal. (5.03) Point out that because there are no tenths, the tenths place has a zero. Write on the board: Ask volunteers to write the decimals. (0.53, 0.503) Point out how the denominator tells you how many places after the decimal point the digit goes: tenths go one place after the decimal, hundredths go two places, and thousandths go three places. SAY: You have to be careful because some place values might be missing. You ll have to write zeros in those positions as placeholders. Exercises: Write the decimal. 3 a) 2 + b) d) e) c) 5 + f) Answers: a) 2.03, b) 3.502, c) 5.007, d) 8.039, e) 0.05, f) Exercises: Write the value of the digit 6 as a fraction or a whole number. a) b) c) d) e) Bonus: What place are the zeros holding in ?

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

Write on the board: 3 = 30 = 1,000 SAY: Three tenths is the same as thirty hundredths. ASK: How many thousandths is that? (300) Fill in the missing numerator, then ask volunteers to write the decimal for each fraction on the board (0.3, 0.30, 0.300). Explain that these are called equivalent decimals, because the fractions they are equal to are equivalent. Exercises: Write the equivalent decimals from the equivalent fractions. a) d) 4 = 40 2 = 20 b) = = 70 c) e) 6 = 60 8 = 80 = 800 Answers: a) 0.4 = 0.40, b) 0.7 = 0.70, c) 0.6 = 0.60, d) 0.2 = 0.20 = 0.200, e) 0.8 = 0.80 = Tell students that saying 0.3 = 0.30 is the same as saying 3 tenths is equal to 30 hundredths or 3 tenths and 0 hundredths. Point out that 3 tenths and 0 hundredths or 0 thousandths and so on is the same as 3 tenths. ASK: How many hundredths is 8 tenths equal to? (80) Have a volunteer write the equivalent decimals on the board. (0.8 = 0.80) Write five ways to write seven tenths on the board: seven tenths seventy hundredths Ask students to write more ways. Then ask volunteers to show ways on the board. Sample answers: 0.7, 0.70, 0.700, 70/, 700/1,000, seven hundred thousandths. Exercises: Some of these are wrong. Which ones? How do you know? a) 0.37 = 37 b) 0.05 = 50 c) = 47 d) 0.62 = 62 Number and Operations in Base Ten 5-42 G-19

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?

Tell students that there are two different ways of saying the number We can say twelve decimal four or twelve and four tenths. Both are correct. (Note that twelve point four is also commonly used. However, we recommend students use the word decimal point. ) Point out the word and between the ones and the tenths, and tell students that we always include it when a number has both a whole-number part and a fraction part. Have students place the following fractions on a number line from 0 to 3: a) three tenths b) two and five tenths c) one and seven tenths d) one decimal point two e) two decimal point eight Draw a number line from 0 to 3 on the board. Mark the following points with an no numbers and have students write the number words for the points you marked: Draw a line on the board with endpoints 0 and 1 marked: 0 1 Ask volunteers to mark the approximate position of each number with an : a) 0.4 b) 6/ c) 0.9 Then draw a number line from 0 to 3 with whole numbers marked: Ask volunteers to mark the approximate positions of these numbers with an : a) 2.1 b) 13/ c) 29/ d) 0.4 e) 22/ Number and Operations in Base Ten 5-43 G-25

Vocabulary decimal equivalent fraction PRIOR KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED Can place decimals and fractions on number lines Understands decimal numbers with up to two decimal places and their equivalent fractions (proper or mixed) MATERIALS string colored thread clothespins Review number lines with decimals. Draw on the board: NOTE: Invite students, in small groups if necessary, to gather near the board as you go through the first part of the lesson. Have a volunteer show where 1/2 is on the number line. Draw another number line the same length and divided into two equal parts, and superimpose that second number line over the first number line so that students see that 1/2 is exactly at the 0.5 mark. ASK: Which decimal is equal to 1/2? Is 0.2 between 0 and 1/2 or between 1/2 and 1? Is 0.7 between 0 and 1/2 or between 1/2 and 1? What about 0.6? 0.4? 0.3? 0.9? Go back to the decimal 0.2 and ASK: We know that 0.2 is between 0 and 1/2, but is it closer to 0 or to 1/2? Draw on the board: ASK: Is 0.6 between 0 and 1/2 or between 1/2 and 1? (1/2 and 1) Which number is it closer to, 1/2 or 1? (1/2) Have a volunteer show the distance to each number with arrows. Which arrow is shorter? Which number is 0.4 closest to, 0, 1/2, or 1? (1/2) Which number is 0.8 closest to?(1) Repeat the questioning for all of the remaining decimal tenths between 0 and 1. Creating number lines. On grid paper, have students draw a line squares long. Then have them cut out the line leaving space above and below for writing and fold it in half so that the two endpoints meet. They Number and Operations in Base Ten 5-44 G-27

28 should mark the points 0, 1/2, and 1 on their line. Now have students re-fold the line, and then fold it in half a second time. Have them unfold the line and look at the folds. ASK: What fraction is exactly halfway between 0 and 1/2? (1/4) How do you know? (the sheet is folded into 4 equal parts, so the first fold must be 1/4 the distance from 0 to 1) SAY: So every half is two quarters. ASK: What fraction is halfway between 1/2 and 1? How do you know? (3/4, because the sheet is folded into 4 equal parts, so the third fold must be 3/4 of the distance from 0 to 1) Have students mark the fractions 1/4 and 3/4 on their number line. Then have students write the decimal numbers from 0.1 to 0.9 in the correct places on their number line using the squares on the grid paper to help them. Comparing numbers on number lines.
