Day 46 - Decimal Speed Stacking - Mrs. Tate, Marshall Simonds Middle School Sixth Grade

This post originally appeared on Mrs. Tate's Blog

Students have been working hard within our decimals unit.  We have been playing a fun game called speed stacking to practice decimal concepts such as place value, word form, standard form, expanded form, rounding and comparing decimals, placing decimals on number lines, and working with all four decimal operations.  After each student finishes stacking, a decimal time up to the hundredths place is presented.  I use this number, or slightly manipulate the number, to create a decimal problem for students to solve.   Here are some pictures and videos of some students cup stacking!
