Our Decimal Word Problems lesson plan provides examples specifically related to numbers with decimals and offers students real-world examples of word problems such as those relating to money and time. It helps students find keywords so they know what operations to use to solve the problem. Students are asked to solve word problems using decimals to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson. Students are also asked to write their own decimal word problems with a partner, utilizing their creativity by creating props and images to act out their problem for the class.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to create and solve decimal word problems using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
