# 24.04.20

24/4/20 - Decimals up to 2.d.p

Well done for all your hard work when completed our fractions unit! That is now complete! We are now moving on to decimals. Our first step is to get to grips with decimals up to 2 decimal places (2.d.p) and being able to understand what the place value of each digit is in a decimal number.

Example:

 Ones . Tenths Hundredths 3 . 4 2

The decimal 3.42 can be written as 3 ones, 4 tenths and 2 hundredths. This can also be partitioned and written as:
3.42 = 3 + 0.4 + 0.02

Complete the following tasks to practise partitioning and writing stem sentences for decimals up to 2.d.p.
