Decimals... year 6

Discussion in 'Primary' started by blackpurse, Feb 26, 2011.

    • Give a number between two numbers with one decimal place, e.g. 2.5 and 2.6
    Fun activites, warm-ups or games needed to teach decimals to a group of low to average ability year 6 children. Where to start, ways to progress and secure understanding needed please.
    I feel like I'm missing something. I've also found decimals the hardest area to teach (I don't know why) Can you help? I hope so.

    I made loads of laminated cards of fractions ,some with 1 DP, some with 2, some with 3 ... for placing on the floor in order ,some with mixed dps, (HA) and some the same dps.
     
  2. Thanks. I have checked them out. They look good. I think we have simliar games on computers at school so I'll try that too. I like your idea about the big cards, I tried this when doing multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100 and it was successful.
    Anymore ideas are welcome
