Adding Decimals

Adding Decimals

Adding up decimals can be as simple as 1-2-3! Teach students to line up digits in the same place value, move the decimal point down to the answer, and then add up the numbers from the smallest place value to the largest. Remind your young mathematicians that decimals are a part of daily life, whether they are measuring or counting money. Consider printing out a restaurant menu, and asking students to find the total amount they would pay for lunch if they ordered an entree, a side, and a drink. See who spent the most and the least amount of money!
