    Extending Place Value with Decimals and Fractions

    (This page created by Mrs. Karen Pennington.)

    Third graders are expected to have memorized their facts up to 10 x 10. For multiplication facts practice:

    1.  Place Value, Power of 10, and Expanded Notation

    We start the year discussing Place Value to the billions place. We also discuss the value of each digit increasing by a power of ten as we go to the left. Students also need to understand place value as it relates to expanded notation. The following video covers all of these concepts.

     

    2. Greater Than Less Than Song: Comparing whole numbers - greater than and less then symbol

     

     3. Decimals, base ten number system, comparing fractions to decimals, expanded form, and hundredths place

     Next we discuss decimals. The video "Math Antics - Decimal Place Value" covers the place value concepts of decimals, including our base ten number system, each place gets 1/10 smaller as we go to the right, comparing fractions to decimals, and expanded form. Fourth graders only need to know values to the hundredths place.

     

     

    4. Fractions Song - Review numerator and denominator examples

     

    5. Converting base 10 fractions to decimals

     Next we spend time converting base 10 fractions to decimals. The video "Math Antics - Converting Base 10 Fractions" covers this concepts well. Fourth graders only need to know how to convert fractions of tenths and hundredths to decimals.

     

     

    6.  Round Numbers 

    Students are also expected to be able to round numbers. This "Rounding Numbers Song" by Number Rock has great examples and reminders related to words used (like approximate) and examples of numbers rounded.

     

     

     7.  Fractions are Parts

     

     8. Working with Parts - Shows comparing and adding fractions.

    9. Equivalent Fractions song with examples

     

     

    10. Comparing Fractions

     

     

     11. Mixed Numbers
