    L7903 Swamp survival: hundredths challenge

    • Learning area Mathematics
    • Published 16/03/2016
    • TLF-ID L7903

    Help the boy cross the dangerous swamp by making a path of stepping stones. Place the decimals in an ascending order to form the path. Compare the decimal fraction on each stepping stone to the others to see if it is larger or smaller. Look carefully at whole numbers and the tenths or hundredths. Put the decimals in order from smallest to largest. Test the sequence by sending the boy across the swamp. This learning object is the third in a series of six objects that progressively increase in difficulty.

    L868 Wishball: tenths

    • Learning area Mathematics
    • Published 23/06/2016
    • TLF-ID L868

    Test your understanding of decimal place value with numbers that include tenths. Receive a starting number, such as 128.9, and work towards turning it into a target number, such as 845.6. Spin a random digit, choose its decimal place value and decide whether to add or subtract the random digit from your starting number. You can use a ‘Wishball’ to help you reach the target number. Try to achieve the target with as few additions or subtractions as possible. This learning object is one in a series of ten objects.
