17.4.18 Tenths

Tenths as fractions and decimals


Today we looked at tenths as a fraction and as a decimal number. We learnt that tenths are when a whole is divided in 10 equal parts so it is smaller than a whole. We used equipment to help us visualise the decimal number and then we used place value charts to write decimal numbers. We know that a tenth is 10 times smaller than a one.
