Learning Intention:Students will understand what the purpose of a decimal point is, learn how to convert a fraction with denominator of 10 and 100 to a decimal, know the place value of a tenths and hundredths, and how to compare decimals using symbols.
Success Criteria: Students will be successful when they can convert a fraction to a decimal point, identify the place value of a tenths and hundredths, and compare decimals using symbols.
Essential Questions: - How can I express a fraction as a decimal? - Which tenth is larger/smaller (from a real world example)? - Which hundredths is larger/smaller (from a real world example)?
