LC- To Multiply Decimals.

Now we know about place value of decimals and the relationship between decimals and fractions, we are going onto multiplying decimals.

So 1m is the same as 100 cm. What would 100 divided by 5 be? That's right 20 cm or 0.2 m.

To find 3 lots we need to multiply 20 by 3. This is 60 cm or 0.6 m.

My friend says that 20 cm = 0.2 m or 2/10 m

They say it is easiest to write down the problem using words and numbers: 0.2 × 3 = 2 tenths × 3, which is 6 tenths so the answer must be 0.6. Is this true?  I wonder if this method will always work?

What if it was 0.23 x 3 instead? or 1.2 x 3? What would we do here?

Let's learn.

Now have a go at the guided practice. Send your answers to us by email. Don't forget!!!!!

Now have a go at the Maths NO Problem work on Seesaw. You can work out your answers in your book fort and then type the answers in Seesaw.

There are 2 pages to do.

I am sure you will manage well. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's work.
