to pass the card to Before the game I also make all the students point to the person to whom they will pass their card 3 Prepare the recording sheet It is extremely helpful to provide students with a numbered table to record their answers I find it is beneficial to have students put a star on the number problem that they are starting with so they record their answers in the correct box See figure 2 for an example Figure 2 How to Play 1 Give each student a blank recording sheet Then distribute the problems to solve Each student is given a different index card to begin the game Have the students put a star on the problem they will start with 2 Have the students solve the problem in front of them Once they are done the teacher says Pass and all the students pass their card to the person next to them Students then work on the problem on the card they just received making sure they record it in the correct box 3 Continue this way until the students have completed each problem 4 Have the students provide the answer for the card they are left holding at the end of the game Notes 1 This game is not a timed activity but most students find it more exciting when they have a set amount of time to finish I tend to supervise the class and when it appears everyone is finished I start counting down from 5 2 Enforce the rule that students are not permitted to pass cards until the teacher says Pass Otherwise students end up with more than one card on their desks and end up passing the wrong card 3 I have used this game with every subject and grade

rule for the soup e g square soup Without telling the students the rule the teacher places one attribute block into the center of the hula hoop saying This piece belongs in my soup today 2 The first student in the circle chooses any other piece places in in the pot and asks Does this belong in your soup today If the piece matches the rule the teacher says Yes it does and the student gets another turn If it does not the student removes that piece from the center and her turn is over 3 Students continue to take turns going around the circle A student may guess the rule only during her turn e g I think you are making blue soup If the student is wrong her turn is over If she is correct she wins the game 4 You can continue to play the game by creating a new rule or allowing the winning student to create a new rule for her classmates to figure out Notes 1 Attribute blocks are excellent tools for this game because they contain four different attributes color shape size and thickness When I play with very young students I choose only one attribute e g red soup or triangle soup However when I play with older students I use several attributes e g thick yellow soup or small red triangle soup 2 When allowing students to create the rule and start the game it is a good idea to have them whisper their soup recipe in your ear They tend to forget their rule and provide false information at times 3 I find that continuing around the circle after a game is won keeps students from arguing about whose turn it is and gives everyone a chance to play For

the same number of points that you have removed from the divisor Are you confused yet For example if you are dividing 5 93 into 1763 28 you would change this to 593 into 176328 00 and then continue Your divisor is now a whole number instead of a decimal 593 instead of 5 93 and your dividend becomes 176328 instead of 1763 28 Sounds so simple doesn t it But people let that silly little decimal point get them every time You then keep dividing until the answer reveals itself If your answer does not go into the dividend and make an even number you should keep adding zeroes to the right of the decimal point until it becomes even or it keeps on repeating itself You should then place the decimal point above the decimal point in the dividend making the answer 297 349 To check to see if your answer is accurate you can multiply the quotient your answer of 297 349 times the divisor 5 93 and it should equal your dividend of 1763 28 Therefore your answer is correct and you have divided your decimals easily Division of decimals requires your ability to multiply correctly and add but you can always check your work with a calculator but not until you have finished and revealed your own answer Decimals are just mathematics way of putting challenges into your everyday life Learning to use decimals will be used often in daily life in maintaining your budget and paying your bills so it pays to learn this well Decimal Games If you enjoyed this article subscribe to receive more great content just like it Subscribe via RSS Feed About the Author Specialty International Education Comments 2 Trackback URL Comments RSS Feed Brianna says October 3 2009 at
