2. HOW TO USE THIS UNIT BOOKLET
This Unit 2 – Decimals Practice Booklet contains the worksheet practice sets that need to be
completed throughout the unit.
1) Read through the notes and examples for each skill also using your entrance tasks as a
reference.
2) Complete the first practice set ON ANOTHER SHEET OF PAPER WITH THE
APPROPRIATE HEADING copying each problem and showing ALL WORK.
3) When finished, self correct the selected answers using the back of this booklet. Once the
practice set is complete and corrected, turn into Mr. Walz and then you can test on that
skill.
a. If you meet standard (pass) on that skill, move on to the next skill.
b. If you do not meet standard (do not pass), complete practice set #2 for that skill
before you can retest.
i. It is key to practice doing each skill correctly and showing all work since
that is the only way to meet the standard.
4) Extension activities are available in the back of this booklet for students to apply these
skills in real-world situations and creative explorations. Students can complete these
activities at any point when they are ahead of the skill that the class is working on.
1) Student grades are based on the percentage of skills passed (the total number of
Washington State Math Standards met). There are 25 skills in Unit 2 that need to be
passed. These 25 skills will be added to the previous skills from other units.
a. Example: Student A tried 25 skills but only met standard on 19. The final grade
would be 76% (19 ÷ 25).

3. SKILL 1: Representing Decimals and Place Value
Standard 4.2.A OBJECTIVE: Represent decimals through thousandths.
DECIMALS represent parts of a whole number and are referred to as rational numbers. Place
value is the value of where a digit is in a decimal number. Standard form is the usual way to
write a decimal, such as 3.52. Word form is writing the decimals in words, such as three and
fifty-two hundredths.
EXAMPLE A:
Name the place value of the underlined digit.
14.234
3 is in the hundredths place value
EXAMPLE B:
Write the decimal is word form.
14.234
Fourteen and two hundred thirty-four thousandths
EXAMPLE C:
Write the decimal is standard form.
Nine and fifteen hundredths
***HINTS: The decimal point is represented by the word AND. Treat the decimal part as its
own number and add the place value of the final digit.***

5. SKILL 2: Graph Decimals on a Number Line
Standard 4.2.A OBJECTIVE: Represent decimals on a number line.
A number line shows you a "picture view" of what a number is. You can visually see
where your numbers are, and what other numbers are nearby.
EXAMPLE: Place 3.2 and 5.67 on a number line.
1) Figure out the whole numbers that are above and below the decimals numbers given.
a. 3.2 is between 3 and 4; 5.67 is between 5 and 6
2) Draw a line with arrows on the ends to indicate that it goes on forever.
3) Make little marks to indicate where the whole numbers are and label them (make sure
there are enough spaces to show all the numbers that you are given to graph)
4) Put a dark circle on the decimal numbers that are given by estimating using benchmarks
such as one-half.
a. 3.2 is closer to 3; 5.67 is closer to 6
***The trick with decimals is to make sure they are correctly between the whole numbers and estimate
which number they would be the closest to. Also, remember from before, you do not need to start at 0.
Just show a few numbers greater and less than the numbers you need to graph. ***
SKILL 2: PRACTICE SET #1
Draw a number line for each problem and place the numbers on it.
1) Graph 5.3 2) Graph 3.8

9. SKILL 4: Ordering Decimals
Standard 6.1.A OBJECTIVE: Order non-negative decimals using the number line/lists.
Another method to order decimals is to graph them on a number line. Here is the example
above using the number line method.
4.0073
4.73
4 4.073
3 4 5 6
The order from least to greatest is 4, 4.0073, 4.073, 4.73

13. SKILL 7: Estimate Decimal Sums and Differences
Standard 5.2.G OBJECTIVE: Estimate sums and differences of decimals to
approximate solutions to problems and determine reasonableness of answers.
***HINT: Add or subtract the whole numbers together and ignore the decimal portion to estimate.
Estimation is used to check the reasonableness of your final answer. It is used in word problems too.***
Estimate each sum or difference using front-end estimation. Since it’s an estimation there
should be no exact answer given.

21. SKILL 12: Decimal Multiplication and Area Model
Standard 6.1.B
OBJECTIVE: Represent multiplication decimals using area models and the number line, and
connect each representation to the related equation..
EXAMPLE A: 3 x 0.2
1) 0.2 represents 2 bars out of 10
2) 3 x 0.2 represents 2 bars shaded 3 times
3) So, 3 x 0.2 = 0.6 because, with 3 groups of 0.2,
six-tenths of a whole (0.6) is shaded.
EXAMPLE B: 0.2 x 0.3
1) Represent the number 0.2 (2 bars shaded out of 10)
2) Cut 0.2 into tenths (ten equal parts)
3) Shade three of the tenths to show 0.3
4) Since each small square is 0.01 of the whole and six of
the small squares are marked, the diagonally
marked section represents 0.06, so 0.3 x 0.2 = 0.06.

Standard 6.1.E OBJECTIVE:Multiply decimals by 1000, 100, 10, 1, 0.1, 0.01, & 0.001.
If you are multiplying by 10, 100 or 1000…
then move the decimal to the RIGHT the same number as there are zeroes.
If you are multiplying by 0.1, 0.01, or 0.001…
then move the decimal to the LEFT the same number as there are zeroes.
WHAT HAPPENED TO

2.1 x 0.1 .21 moved one place left

24. SKILL 14: Estimate Decimal Products
Standard 6.1.C
OBJECTIVE: Estimate products of decimals.
EXAMPLE: 8.345 x 4.983
8.345 rounds to 8; 4.983 rounds to 5
Rounding the factors gives 8 x 5 = 40
Therefore, a good estimate of the product of the decimal numbers 8.345 and 4.983 is 40.
***HINT: Use the tenths digit to round your whole number. If it is 4 or less, keep the whole number the
same. If it is 5 or above, increase the whole number by 1. Estimation is used to check the
reasonableness of your final answer. It is used in word problems too.***
Estimate each product using rounding. Since it’s an estimation there should be no exact

Standard 6.1.E OBJECTIVE: Divide decimals by 1000, 100, 10, 1, 0.1, 0.01,and 0.001.
If you are dividing by 10, 100 or 1000…
then move the decimal to the LEFT the same number as there are zeroes.
If you are dividing by 0.1, 0.01, or 0.001…
then move the decimal to the RIGHT the same number as there are zeroes.
EXAMPLE ANSWER WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DECIMAL?
4.2 ÷ 10 0.42 moved one place left
EXAMPLE A:
94.56 100
4.2 ÷ 100 0.042 moved two places left Since it is divided by 100, move decimal
point two places to the left.
4.2 ÷ 1000 0.0042 moved three places left
4.2 ÷ 0.1 42 moved one place right 94.56 0.9456

36. SKILL 21: Estimate Decimal Quotients
Standard 6.1.C OBJECTIVE: Estimate quotients of decimals.
1. Round the divisor (what goes outside the box or given second) to the nearest whole number.
2. Round the dividend (what goes inside the box or given first) to the nearest number that the
divisor can go evenly into
3. Divide.
EXAMPLE: 42.345 ÷ 5.12
5.12 is the divisor and round to 5
42.345 is the dividend and this rounds to 40 since 5 can evenly divide 40
Therefore, a good estimate is 40 ÷ 5 which is 8.
***HINT: It may seem that you have to round the dividend a lot. That is ok because you want to be able
to divide evenly. Estimation is used to check the reasonableness of your final answer. It is used in word
problems too.***
Estimate each quotient using rounding. Since it’s an estimation there should be no exact

Standard 6.1.G OBJECTIVE: Describe the effect of multiplying or dividing a number
by one, by zero, by a number between zero and one, and by a number greater than one.
5x0 0
If you multiply any number by 0, then the product ALWAYS equals 0.
5x1 5
If you multiply any number by 1, then the product ALWAYS equals that number.
If you multiply any number by a number LESS than 1 but GREATER than 0, then the 5 x 0.5 2.5
product ALWAYS equals a smaller number.
If you multiply any number by a number GREATER than 1, then the product 5x2 10
ALWAYS equals a larger number.
EXAMPLE A: Describe what happens when you multiply 9 times 0.3.
The product will be a smaller number than 9.
If you divide any number by 0, then the quotient ALWAYS equals no solution because 5÷0 No Solution
you cannot divide by 0 ever.
5÷1 5
If you divide any number by 1, then the quotient ALWAYS equals that number.
If you divide any number by a number LESS than 1 but GREATER than 0, then the 5 ÷ 0.5 10
quotient ALWAYS equals a larger number.
If you divide any number by a number GREATER than 1, then the quotient ALWAYS 5÷2 2.5
equals a smaller number.
EXAMPLE B: Describe what happens when you divide 9 by 1.
The quotient will equal 9.
