Balancing Act

We continued working with decimals by writing decimals in standard, word, expanded, and fractional form.

After reviewing each type of form using p. 5 of our journal (above).  We practiced changing some numbers to each form using "Balancing Act" (see below).  This activity challenged the students to fill in the missing forms.  However, since some of the places were filled in, the kids were able to look at a model to help guide them.  Most students were able to complete the assignment at school.

Homework:  Balancing Act (finish) and xtramath.org
