5th Grade Math – Decimal Place Value

Clip 28/29: Day 2: Decimal Post-Lesson Debrief Part F


Erika Isomura describes her initial expectations for students’ understandings, using the student work sample to evaluate their attainment of the lesson’s learning outcomes for content. Erika expresses curiosity about whether students might convert quantities to fractions to help them order quantities by size. She hopes that the students might feel that fractions are a “home base” that they can step back to, to test the soundness of their reasoning and evaluate the reasonableness of their results.
