When teaching decimal numbers, first review the basics of thousands, hundreds, tens and ones and then introduce (or review) tenths, hundredths and thousandths.
In KS2 children are taught that decimals are another way of writing fractions. The hundred number square is a really good way of showing children the equivalence between fractions and decimals.
Children usually start to learn about decimals in Year 4. The first thing children need to know is that a decimal is A PART of a whole. A good way to explain this is to show them an empty hundred number square / chart.
These worksheets can help your students review decimals number concepts. Worksheets include place value, naming decimals to the nearest tenth and hundredth place, adding decimals, subtracting decimals, multiplying, dividing, and rounding decimals.
