Unit 6, Lesson 6# Use the area model and number line to represent mixed numbers with units of ones, tenths, and hundredths in fraction and decimal forms

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students draw representations of decimal numbers with ones, tenths, and hundredths using an area model. They also plot numbers with ones, tenths, and hundredths on the number line. Finally, they express numbers in unit form as decimals in order to emphasize the conventions of place value. (For example, they explain why 3 ones 8 tenths is equivalent to 3.8 or 3.80, but not to 3.08.)
