Interactive Math Activity - Choose the Operation Word Problems with Decimals

Let's practice solving word problems with decimals by choosing the operation! Try out this fifth-grade math activity with your class to help your students build confidence and proficiency in solving word problems with decimals. Upon completion of this online math lesson, children will gain a better understanding of the four operations applied to word problems with decimals.

Your students will be challenged to answer a variety of multi-step word problems in this math activity. Here are a few examples. "Ryan pays $226.36 a month for his car. He pays $574.52 a month for his apartment rent. How much does Ryan pay each month for his car and apartment?" "The Rose family has 2 cats. Reuben weighs 82.63 ounces. Ophelia weighs 67.45 ounces. How much more does Reuben weigh than Ophelia?" and "A deck of cards weighs 94.45 grams. A light bulb weighs 35.71 grams. How much more does a deck of cards weigh than a light bulb?" If students get stuck on a question, they can click on the "Hint" button. The hint will consist of a prompt that will help students solve the problem without giving away the answer. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will show them the right answer, accompanied by an easy-to-follow tutorial. This math activity is designed to help students learn from mistakes along the way.

Every math lesson in the "I Know It" program, including this fifth-grade word problem activity, is equipped with built-in features that help children make the most out of their math practice session. A progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen shows students how many questions they have answered so far out of the total number of questions in the lesson. A score-tracker beneath that lets students see how many points they have earned for correct responses. The speaker icon in the upper-left corner of the practice screen indicates the read-aloud feature. Students can click this button to have the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This option is a great resource for ESL/ELL students and children who excel as auditory learners. All of these "I Know It" math lesson features are designed with your students' success in mind!
