Learning objects Decimaster plus: match-up 2

TLF ID L1079

Explore ways of representing decimals using mathematical notation and visual tools. Match a decimal fraction between 0 and 4 such as 2.6. Adjust two sets of units on a range of visual scales and other representations. Work through these representations in any order: common fraction, number line, counting frame and dial. Match three decimals with each tool. This learning object is one in a series of nine objects.
