Good Morning Year 5! Today’s decimal challenge involves understanding decimals as intervals. This just means looking at which decimals come in between two whole numbers.
For example, what decimals come between 7 and 8: 7, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 7.8, 7.9, 8.
The above would work with any larger decimal too for example between 80 and 91 etc. Below I have posted a number line of the different decimal intervals to support you between whole numbers.
Starter Task: Read the question carefully, think about your place value columns! Remember the largest decimals have the greatest whole numbers!
Independent Task: Like the above, you need to create decimals using the 4 digits they have given you below for each question. Your decimals you create also need to fit the rule and statement they are providing for you.
For example ‘create a decimal between the numbers 27 – 29 using the digits 7, 2, 8, 2’. Your decimals will have a tens, ones, tenths and hundredths column (2dp). Good luck!
Reasoning Challenge: Answer below on the blog and explain why.
