Today we…

* Estimated products of decimals

Our warm up was a logic riddle!

Riddle me this…

The police rounded up Jim, Bud and Sam yesterday, because one of them was suspected of having robbed the local bank. The three suspects made the following statements under intensive questioning.

  • Jim: I’m innocent.
  • Bud: I’m innocent.
  • Sam: Bud is guilty.

If only one of these statements turns out to be true, who robbed the bank?


Then our learning target…

And then we compared estimates, products of fractions and products of decimals …

We worked on a worksheet: Nov 5_Multiplying Decimals as fractions Class work
