This month in class we have been learning about Decimals. A decimal is a point separating a whole number from a part of a number! First I thought that a decimal is a dot just like that so you can tell were the ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, tenths, hundredths and thousandths! Also we have learned how to write decimals !
First I thought decimals can only be used in math in some things and money!
But I have learned that decimals can be used in measurement too! Like if were to measure this line __________________ it could be 5 cm and 3 mm which is written like this, 5.3 ! I have also learned that decimals can be used in number lines!
The things I still want to learn is that can decimals be used in when you are writing the decimal in words? For example: 685.089 Can it be Witten like this: six hundred eighty five . eighty nine thousands! or do you have to write it like this six hundred eighty five and eighty nine thousands. I have learned that decimals can be used in many different places!
Here is a poster just in case !
Thank you readers, & I hope you enjoyed and learned something new today!
