Dancing with Decimals
Are decimals driving your students crazy? Is teaching them driving you crazy, the decimals, that is? Do your students really, really understand why a number raised to a negative exponent is a fraction and not a negative number? How can students understand scientific notation if they don’t understand exponents? This workshop will take the participants from standard form/notation through expanded, distributive, exponential and algebraic form on both the left and right place/side of the decimal point. Money (fake), decimal dice and digits will be used in this workshop. Come prepared to laugh and have fun.
