Understanding Decimal Numbers

Answer these questions:

  1. What is a decimal number?
  2. Where are they used and how are they useful? Give at least 5 examples of decimal numbers in everyday use.
  1. Collect some maths equipment and invent a game which challenges people how to do one of the following: put decimal numbers into order, add/subtract, multiply or divide decimal numbers.
  2. Write instructions for your game, making sure you explain how the game develops your mathematical understanding.
  3. Include in your instructions how to make the game more challenging or interesting, as well as how to simplify the game to make it easier.
  4. Post it to the Team 14 blog with a label of Maths. If you are not from Team 14, get one of these people to log you in so you can publish.
These games will be used again for the benefit of others.
