Mastering Multiplying with those Difficult Decimals!

To begin our lesson today, we watched a short video on multiplying with decimals!  My favorite part of multiplying decimals is step one in which we basically just ignore the decimals!  After we get an answer, all we have to do is count the spaces after the decimals in the problem and make sure that there are the same amount of spaces after the decimal in the answer!

Remember, to determine where the decimal goes in an answer, you COUNT the decimal spaces.  You can also use your skills of estimation to determine which decimal placement makes the most sense.

Tonight's homework is to complete the ten problems on the "Multiplication of Decimals" worksheet.  As a reminder, we also have a quiz next Tuesday on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals.
