Teaching Arithmetic: Lessons for Decimals and Percents. Grades 5-6.
De Francisco, Carrie; Burns, Marilyn
This book contains a collection of fraction lessons that support curriculum and instruction. The goals of the lessons are to give all students the chance to: (1) extend their understanding of the place value system to include decimals; (2) learn how decimals relate to fractions; (3) represent, read, and interpret decimal numerals; (4) compare decimal numerals; and (5) learn what percents are and how they relate to fractions and decimals. In order to help teachers with planning and teaching the lessons, each lesson is organized into the sections that include an overview, materials, time, teaching directions, teaching notes, a vignette describing the actual lesson, follow-up suggestions, and questions and discussion.
