Estimation, Rounding and Computation
Whole Numbers, Decimals, Multiplication
We will begin Unit 2 with adding and subtracting whole numbers and decimals. Subtracting across zeros is always a little tricky! Then we will use our knowledge of place value to round decimals to any place. We will also multiply decimals down to the hundredths place and divide whole numbers and decimals. Hopefully students have been practicing their basic multiplication facts which will come in handy when we multiply larger numbers (3 digits times 2 digits). We will always use estimating to check our answers for reasonableness.
