Students Engage in Real-World Practice with Decimals

All fifth grade classes are checking out the real world…of decimals.

The students explored decimals by searching for numbers with decimals – such as prices of items – that they found in advertisements for Walgreens and various other places.

The kids were applying math concepts they already learned – those relevant to rounding, adding and subtracting decimals – while searching through the ads for decimal after decimal.

Great work, students! We can tell you are working hard!
