In this video segment from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad is trying
to get to the Mother’s Day Harvest on the Madre Bonita Express train.
However, Hacker has ripped out a piece of the train track, and the
Cybersquad must use what they know about fra...ctions, measurement and decimals to find a way to repair the track. Run time 03:12.[more]

This teacher-created video shows students how to order decimals from least to greatest. The numbers 3.14, 3.9, 3.21, and 3.09 are written on a white board, and the teacher explains step-by-step how to order them.( 1:18)

Instructor uses a white board to demonstrate how to order decimals. Example models lining up the given decimal numbers in a column and comparing each place to order from least to greatest.

This video reviews how to say and write decimals when given a fraction. Additional examples are done. Then the video moves on to fractions that do not have a denominator that is not a 10, 100, 1000, etc. They show how to divide a fraction, thus conve...rting to a decimal. Another example is done. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.[more]

This teacher made video addresses research on teaching decimals. Some effective ways to teach decimals are using a decimal grid, fractional addition to show relationship between grids. don't rely on procedures and tricks, don't give all needed grids ...at once, and use real life follow up activities. This is a great professional development opportunity to improve math instruction and mastery in the classroom. This is a super differentiated tool for our struggling students. (6:46)[more]

This video tutorial offers instruction about comparing decimals. Instructor uses computer software, rather than a traditional whiteboard, for demonstration. (07:17)
