Decimals are an integral part of building a strong foundation in mathematics. The more familiar students are with decimals, the less scary they will seem. Bolster math skills with this essential supplementary book. With these exercises, students work sequentially through each concept in decimals and practice their skills before moving on to the next concept. Each concept is explained in an introductory page and followed by two practice pages. Periodic cumulative review pages can be used for additional practice or for assessment. This step-by-step approach can be used for extended study or to supplement the regular textbook. This book is aligned with NCTM standards.

This book includes practice in rounding decimals, adding and subtracting decimals, multiplying and dividing decimals, converting decimals to percents and fractions, scientific notation, and much more.

Review by: DeAnna McDuffie, Teaching Children Mathematics - May 1, 2006
The true strength of the book is the easy-to-understand format. The author has created an “Information for Teachers” page that highlights her intention that the book be a supplement tool “to be used after the concepts have been introduced by the teacher.” Each lesson begins with an introduction, which consists of a descriptive set of directions (each direction is set up as a bulleted item), followed by two to four examples. The answer key was created in a font that is easy to read.

I used portions of this book with my fifth-grade students, who enjoyed the lessons and appeared at ease with them. The format of the introduction, directions, and examples proved to be an extra visual help for students who were still a bit unsure of the concept. I would recommend the purchase and use of this book. I found it useful in my classroom and intend to continue using it throughout the year and in the future.
