Mrs Hussain's group lesson

We are going to move on to using a formal column method to add decimals today. We have done this in class for whole numbers. The only thing that has changed is that we now have a decimal point. When you are writing out your calculations make sure you have your decimal points in both the questions and in the answer. Complete the questions and then review your answers by marking with the answers. Mrs Corcoran


Why is it important to line up the columns?

What happens when there are a total of ten counters in a place value column?

Why is the position of the decimal point important?
