Overview:

In this interactive activity, students will be led through steps to compare amounts of money which can be related to comparing decimals to the hundredths place. There are teaching activities as well as practice activities available. A handout that reviews the strategies taught during the activity can be printed. After utilizing this resource, the students can complete the short quiz to assess their understanding.

Content Standard(s):

MA2019 (2019)
Grade: 4
19. Use visual models and reasoning to compare two decimals to hundredths (referring to the same whole), recording comparisons using symbols >, =, or <, and justifying the conclusions.
Unpacked Content
Evidence Of Student Attainment:
Students:
When given decimals to the hundredths will,
  • Compare two decimals using place value, visual models, and reasoning.
  • Record comparisons of two decimals using <, >, or = and justify the conclusion.
  • Use place value language to describe decimals in different ways to make comparisons.

  • Example: 0.13 as one-tenth and three-hundredths, or thirteen hundredths.
Teacher Vocabulary:
  • Visual model
  • Compare
  • Reasoning
  • Tenths
  • Hundredths
  • Decimal point
  • Place value
Knowledge:
Students know:
  • a variety of strategies for comparing whole numbers and can record comparisons using symbols <, >, or =.
Skills:
Students are able to:
  • Use visual models and reasoning to compare two decimals to hundredths.
  • Record comparisons of two decimals to hundredths using symbols <, >, or =, and justify the conclusion.
Understanding:
Students understand that:
  • Comparison of decimals are valid only when they refer to the same whole.
  • Two decimals are equivalent if they represent the same area or name the same point on a number line.
Diverse Learning Needs:
Essential Skills:
Learning Objectives:
M.4.19.1: Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size.
M.4.19.2: Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole.
M.4.19.3: Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
M.4.19.4: Convert fractions to decimals.
M.4.19.5: Compare two decimals to tenths.
M.4.19.6: Compare whole numbers.
M.4.19.7: Identify comparison symbols.
Examples: >, <, and =.

Prior Knowledge Skills:
  • Define equivalent.
  • Recognize pictorial representations of equivalent fractions.
  • Recognize different interpretations of fractions, including parts of a set or a collection, points on a number line, numbers that lie between two consecutive whole numbers, and lengths of segments on a ruler.
  • Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
  • Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
  • Label a fraction with multiple representations.
  • Recognize that a whole can be partitioned into differing equal parts (halves, fourths, eighths, etc.).
  • Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares; and describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters; and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of.
  • Recognize different interpretations of fractions, including parts of a set or a collection, points on a number line, numbers that lie between two consecutive whole numbers, and lengths of segments on a ruler.
