Learning Focus- Order decimals

Remember to:

1. First, look at the digits of highest place value. If they are different, order them by this digit. For instance, 8.6, 4.5, 6.3 and 2.9 all have different ones digits so you can order the numbers by these digits. 

2. 2.9, 4.5, 6.3, 8.6 is the ascending order of these numbers. If the digits are the same, look at the digits of the next highest place value. For instance, 5.8, 5.5, 5.4, 5.7 all have the same ones digits so we must now look at the tenths column as this is the next highest place value. 5.4, 5.5, 5.7 5.8 is the ascending order of these numbers. 

3. Sometimes, in a set of numbers, some of the digits are the same and some are different - 3.5, 4.7, 2.7, 3.8, for instance. In this set of numbers, 2.7 would come first. Next, there are two numbers with the same ones digit (3.5 and 3.8) so we look at the tenths digit and see that 5 tenths is less than 8 tenths so 3.5 comes next. These numbers in ascending number are: 2.7, 3.5, 3.8, 4.7.
