Today, we are going to continue learning about comparing decimals.
Have a look at the in focus question below.
Which rope do you think is the longest?
Use the place value that we have learnt this week first and count how many blocks there would be in each number.
Well done, the answer was 0.49.
There were no whole numbers in any of the numbers so we have a look at the tenths column. 4 tenths is greater than 2 and 3 tenths so this is our answer for the longest rope.
Did we even need to look at the hundredth or thousandth place?
No, as we found our answer by looking at the tenths column.
Arrange the numbers in the Guided practice section below.
Look carefully at the place value of each digit.
Clue: You might not need to look at the full number as the tenth might give you your answer.
Now complete worksheet 5 below which will be sent to you on Seesaw.
