            Dazzling Decimals
We are learning to add and subtract up to three decimal places. We are learning to convert between fractions, decimals and percentages.

What is 244/1000 as a decimal: 0.244

What is 55/100 as decimal: 0.55

What is 12/1000 as a decimal: 0.012

What is ½ as a decimal: 0.5

What is ¼ as a decimal: 0.25

What is ⅕  as a decimal: 0.2

What is ⅛ as a decimal: 0. 125

0.45 + 0.42 = 0.87

0.56 + 0.17 = 0.83

0.67 + 0.91 = 1.58

0.555 + 0.014 = 0.569

0.7 - 0.45 = 0.35

0.55 - 0.45 = 0.1

0.76 - 0.29 = 0.47

2.5 - 0.78 = 1.72

1.7 - 0.999 = 0.701

0.934 - 0. 244= 0.69

0.944 - 0. 119 = 0.825

50/100 = 50%

1/10 = 10%

0.4 = 40%
0.05 = 5%
0.9 = 90%

Iced Mammoth

Walt: write a little story about a interesting picture.

As the mammoth was strolling through the forest looking for something to eat everyone heard his loud feet stomping along the ground. The Mammoth slowly walked up to a tree and seen little berries hanging from the tree. Looking around to make sure that no one was looking, then he quickly pinched a few berries from out of the tree. As he was enjoying his berries he look behind him and seen a large wave coming towards him. He blew his trunk so loud and stomped his feet so hard. The ground shock. The he did a humongous loud growl. Everyone stopped and tried to follow where the loud growl/noise came from. As soon as the wave hit the mammoth I quickly turned into ice.
