Match Decimals, for students age 10 years and up.

Contents:

  • 40 Match (80 tiles)
  • Game rules

Match Decimals contains answers with matching decimals. Two and two tiles match, so that for instance 0.5 and 0.50 will make a Match. There are also 20 bonus tiles in the box. These can be used to vary the game and increase the level of challenge. In the decimal box you will find 20 tiles with whole numbers and decimals that match. For instance will 1.75 match 1.0 + 0.75.

The 20 bonus tiles in the fractions box and the decimal box can be mixed together and can then be matched (example: 1 ¾ matches 1.75).

It might be a good idea to pick out only a few tiles when you are introducing the game. This is also a great way to adjust the game to weaker or stronger students.

Match Decimals can be mixed up with Match Fractions and Match Percentages. This is an excellent way to better understand the connection between fractions, percentages and decimals. If you mix up all three boxes, every tile will match with at least five other tiles.

For example, the tile 0.5 will have the following matches:

50%
0.50
1/2
2/4

Match Fractions, Match Percentages and Match Decimals make up the second series of Match-games.
