Our Decimal Multiplication lesson plan teaches students how to multiply decimals. The lesson provides students with four steps to multiplying decimals. These steps are: ignore the decimal point(s), multiply the numbers, count all places to the right of the decimal point in both numbers, and count to the left the same number of places in the product to insert the decimal. Students are asked to work individually to complete decimal multiplication problems in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to multiply decimals through the thousandths.
