Mrs Hussain's Group Lesson

Today you are going to continue your adding and subtracting of decimal numbers, but this time the decimal numbers will have a different number of decimal places. So it is very important that you line up the numbers correctly!

 

Example:

3.38 + 2.045 = ? Look carefully at how many tenths, hundredths and thousandths are in each number. Draw a place value grid and represent the numbers. You can then add them as normal.

Task 1:

Try these adding and subtracting questions. Make sure you are looking carefully at the numbers and lining them up correctly.

Task 2:

Now you have practised your adding and subtracting, try solve these reasoning and problem solving questions. Remember to check whether you are being asked to add or subtract!

I will add all the answers later today for you to mark your work.
