Yesterday, we learned about writing decimals less than 1.
We understood that after the decimal point, we have place value for tenths, hundredths and thousandths.
Today, we are going to continue learning about decimals.
Have a look at the in focus question below.
What number do you think is being shown?
Well done, you can see that there is 1 /100 and 5/1000.
As a decimal we write this as 0.015. There are no whole numbers and no tenths.
What number is being shown by the blocks?
Well done, if you got the answer 15 /1000.
1 block = 10 and 5 separate blocks added together makes 15.
Look carefully at the diagram with the blocks.
There are no whole ones and no tenths.
Each of these decimals have hundredths and thousandths.
You can see them as fractions and decimals.
Now have a go at the guided practice section below and remember your place value.
Count the blocks carefully.
Now complete worksheet 2 below which will be sent to you on Seesaw.
