Video, Math, Grade 5, Elementary,
The WCPSS Math Department produced this video to support teachers as they teach the unit Adding and Subtracting Decimals in the grade 5 curriculum.
This video focuses on subtracting decimals. The subtraction used to solve a sample example is modeled in 2 ways. Base ten blocks are used to visually represent the decimals being subtracted. The trading of the base ten blocks is clearly demonstrated and explained. The other example for solving subtraction of decimals problems is using base ten grids.
