WEEK: 11
OUTCOMES: MA2-7NA
CONTENT:
STRAND:
SUB-STRAND:
Number and Algebra
Fraction and Decimals
Represents, models and compares commonly used fractions and decimals.
Recognise that the place value systems can be extended to tenths and hundredths, and make connections between fractions
and decimal notation.
 Use place value to partition decimals of up to two decimal places, eg 5.37 = 5 + 3 tenths + 7 hundredths
 Partition decimals up to two decimal places in non-standard forms, eg 5.37 = 5 + 37 hundredths
 Display decimal cards from Week 10 decimal lessons. Ask students to identify place value and write onto place value
chart on the board.

TEACHING AND LEARNING EXPERIENCES
WHOLE CLASS INSTRUCTION
MODELLED ACTIVITIES
 Class place value chart – create a
human sized place value chart for ones,
tape on the floor. Use a beach ball to
represent the decimal point. Provide 3
sets of A4 sized numbers 0 to 9. Choose
3 students to pick a card and stand on
the chart. Discuss the number made.
Repeat with other decimal numbers.
Discuss the place value eg. 5.37 = 5
ones, 3 tenths and 7 hundredths.
 Decimal Place Value Chart – introduce a
decimal place chart to students and
note the names of the columns to the
right of the decimal are tenths and then
hundredths. Display a chart in the
classroom for further reference.

 Numeral Expanders – create a large
decimal numeral expander for ones,
tenths and hundredths. Use A4 0-9
cards to stick onto parts of the numeral
expander. Model expanding out to show
how 5.37 is equal to 537 hundredths; 53
tenths and 7 hundredths; 5 ones, 3
tenths and 7 hundredths. Create a
number using base 10 materials and
represent on the large numeral
expander. Record different ways to
partition the same number.

EVALUATION &
REFLECTION
 Use a decimal place value chart to record decimal numbers to 2 decimal places. Ask questions such
as “How many tenths?”
 Use a place value chart to record decimal numbers to 2 decimal places that have digits up to the
hundreds eg. 103.75. Have students find numbers that are smaller and greater than each other.
 Investigation: Decimal Numeral Expanders: Students create their own decimal numeral expander
to 2 decimal places and use a small piece of blue tack for the decimal point (so it is easily removed
when expanding the expander). Students roll a dice three times and record the numbers onto their
numeral expander. Then use the expander to record ones, tenths and hundredths. Explore nonstandard forms as well such as 537 hundredths, 5 ones and 37 hundredths. Share expanders
around the class and repeat. Ask questions such as Anyone who has more than 65 hundredths
stand up. Anyone with 5 tenths stand up. Anyone with more than 400 hundredths stand up.

 Decimal Jigsaw (Counting On level 4) Provide students with a cut out jigsaw of the numbers from
0.1 to 10.0. Students use their knowledge of place value to put the jigsaw back together.

 Decimal partitioning online game: Students use a variety of standard and non-standard
partitioning to find 5 different ways to make a decimal number to 2 decimal places.

Follow-up:
All assessment tasks should be written in red and planning should be based around developing the skills to complete that task.
Assessment rubrics or marking scale should be considered.
