Decisive Decimals

Upon returning from our holiday break our main mathematics focus will be to take our understanding of decimals to new levels by exploring them precisely on models such as grids and number lines. We will also review strategies for comparing and ordering decimals, which we explored back in December.
Here are three helpful strategies we have already learned:

Convert decimals to fractions with like denominators.

Convert decimals to their percent equivalents.

Visualize the values to compare decimals. 

Happy Mathematizing,
