Wednesday July 27, 2011 Hubbs Center - Math 2 Agenda and Objectives
Today’s Objectives:• We will discuss and correct Tuesday’s homework: place value and relating fractions and decimals• We will practice converting fractions into decimals in class and on our homework.
Homework Review• “Identifying Decimal Place Value” – page 84 – take our your decimal place value chart to help you.• Let’s discuss the answers for each problem, numbers 1-18.• Let’s go around the room and each person can say an answer or they can also say “pass” if they do not want to share.
Homework Review• “Relating Decimals and Fractions” – page 84 – take out your hundredth grids to help you.• Let’s go around the room to read off each answer. You can say “pass” if you do not wish to share.
Converting Fractions to DecimalsStep 1: Write the fraction as a division problem.Step 2: Write a decimal point after numerator and directly above it in the answer (quotient). Write a zero in the dividend after the decimal point. (We usually divide to three decimal places, so you may need to write three zeros, depending on the fraction you start with.)Step 3: Divide. Place a zero in the ones place of the quotient.
