A line with numbers
In the first chapter the number line is explained. What is a number line? A number line is a line on which all numbers are in order from low to high. First there is practice with whole numbers to learn to understand the concept of number line. Then we will explain that decimal numbers are actually numbers that are on the number line between the integers. The student can practice this with different exercises. The purpose of this chapter is to understand the concept of numbers with decimals.
Simple addition sums with decimals
In chapter three a start is made with learning how to add decimal numbers. First very simple with tithes and sums that are not difficult. eg 1 + 1.2. The exercise gives explanations and visualization of the calculation.
Addition sums with large decimal numbers
For more difficult addition sums, a method is to temporarily think away the comma. You do this by multiplying the numbers in the sum by 10, 100 or 1000 and later calculating the result by dividing by 10, 100 or 1000. This chapter contains several exercises where this method is practiced step by step.
Add together fractions and decimals
Now you will learn to convert fractions into decimal numbers and backwards, you can practice with sums that contain both a fraction and a decimal number. Chapter 9 contains two exercises where these sums can be practiced.
