Calculating Decimals: Making Wholes

  • Lesson 1 of 5

Year 5


SKU: M5IL404001

This scheme of work starts by encouraging your class to identify the value of each digit in a three-digit number with two decimal places, giving as many facts about the number as they can. It then goes on to challenge your class to use mental skills (supported by diagrams and number lines) to solve complement problems, figuring out what they need to add to a number with up to two decimal places to make a whole number. This is also related to money to help them place decimals in a real-life context.
