# Decimal Fractions

## Objective

Represent decimals to hundredths more than one. Convert between fraction, decimal, unit, and fraction and decimal expanded form.

## Common Core Standards

### Core Standards

?

• 4.NF.C.5 — Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100. Students who can generate equivalent fractions can develop strategies for adding fractions with unlike denominators in general. But addition and subtraction with unlike denominators in general is not a requirement at this grade. For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.

• 4.NF.C.6 — Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.

?

• 4.NBT.A.2

• 3.NF.A.2

• 4.NF.A.1

## Criteria for Success

?

1. Convert between fraction form, decimal form, unit form, and decimal and fraction expanded form for some number to hundredths.
2. Understand the value of each digit in a multi-digit decimal to hundredths, using a place value chart to help (MP.7).
3. Understand that place value is symmetric about the ones place, as opposed to the decimal point.

## Tips for Teachers

?

When saying a number in word form, make sure to only use the word “and” in place of the decimal place and nowhere else. For example, 217.35 is read “two hundred seventeen and thirty-five hundredths,” not “two hundred and seventeen and thirty-five hundredths.” Also recall from Lesson 4 that “there are several ways to read decimals aloud, but even though ‘mathematicians and scientists often read 0.15 aloud as “zero point one five” or “point one five”,’ refrain from using this language until you are sure students have a strong sense of place value with decimals” (NF Progression, p. 15).

### Problem 2

Use the following numbers to answer each of the following questions:

a. 1.57

b. 5.03

c. 98.30

d. 623.46

1. What is the value of the digit 1 in (a)? The digit 5?

2. What is the value of the digit 3 in (b), (c), and (d) above? How are those values related to one another?

3. What is the value of the digit in the hundreds place in (c)? What is the value of the digit in the hundredths place in (c)? How are these similar? How are they different?

## Discussion of Problem Set

?

• In #1a, how did you estimate the location of your point?
• In #2f, express this number in ones and tenths. Is this equivalent to 7 ones 70 hundredths? How do you know?
• Why is there one more item in the center column of #3 than in the other columns?
• How do the place value disks in #4 help to show the value of each digit? How did the unit language help you to write the total value of the number disks?
• In #5, how did you determine the value of each digit? Did anyone use a place value chart to help?
• In #6, we can write the expanded notation of a number in different ways. What is similar about each of the ways? What is different?
• Ten is found in the word “tenths,” and hundred is found in the word “hundredths.” We say that these place values are symmetric. What are they symmetric around? How can we see that in the place value chart?
• Why is the number zero important? What role does it play in the number 100? The number 0.01? Based on that understanding, is 7 the same as 7.0? Why or why not?
