Learning Focus- Writing decimals


  1. Read and write numbers with decimals and understand the value of each digit.
  2. Show your understanding of place value by partitioning numbers with decimals in different ways.
  3. How is zero used as a place holder in decimal numbers? In the number 9.07, although the zero has no value on its own, it holds the tenths place; the 7 digit would become seven tenths if there was no zero.
