4.N.2.6 Represent, read and write decimals up to at least the hundredths place in a variety of contexts including money.
In a Nutshell
Students will use their understanding of place value to at least the hundredths place to read, write and understand how decimals represent quantities.
Student Actions

Teacher Actions

 Develop a deep and flexible conceptual understanding of decimals by connecting them to realworld uses, such as with money.
 Develop the ability to communicate mathematically by reading, translating and communicating decimal quantities in verbal and written formats.


Use and connect mathematical representations by providing examples of decimals in realworld contexts (i.e., money, increments of time (tenths or hundredths of a second), temperature, or weight on a digital scale).

Support productive struggle in learning mathematics by providing opportunities for students to make the connection between decimals as numbers in the classroom, and decimals in the realworld.

Implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving by introducing problem scenarios having multiple entry points for reading, writing, and using decimals in a variety of contexts.

Key Understandings

Misconceptions

 Reading, writing, and communicating about decimal numbers and the quantities they represent can facilitate understanding many realworld situations.

 Terms such as tens and tenths or hundreds and hundredths are interchangeable.
 The word 'and' can be used anywhere when saying a number and has no significance. The use of the word 'and' actually signifies the decimal point.
