The knowledge of the method of adding whole numbers with vertical presentation and carry over method is a prerequisite here. Once you master adding whole numbers, the method described here, is easy to follow.
But remember that, simple things need perfection and perfection is not a simple thing.
Study the Example and solve the problems given in exercise and check with the Answers.
The following note is made use of here.
putting any number of zeroes to the extreme right side of the decimal part of a decimal number does not change the value of the decimal number.
Method of adding Decimals
Step 1 : For the given decimals, to be added, Make the number of digits after the decimal point equal by putting zeroes to the extreme right side of the decimal part, if required.
Step 2 : Write the given decimals, to be added, one under the other in column form so that the decimal points of all the addends are in the same column and the digits at the same place are in the same column.
Step 3 : Add as in the case of whole numbers.
Step 4 : In the sum, put the decimal point directly under the decimal points in the addends.
The following example will make the proceudure clear.
Recently, I have found a series of math curricula (Both Hard Copy and Digital Copy) developed by a Lady Teacher who taught everyone from Pre-K students to doctoral students and who is a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education.
This series is very different and advantageous over many of the traditional books available. These give students tools that other books do not. Other books just give practice. These teach students “tricks” and new ways to think.
These build a student’s new knowledge of concepts from their existing knowledge. These provide many pages of practice that gradually increases in difficulty and provide constant review.
These also provide teachers and parents with lessons on how to work with the child on the concepts.
The series is low to reasonably priced and include
There is an exclusive, Parent Information Page provides YOU with detailed reports of your child’s progress so you can monitor your child’s success and give them encouragement. These Reports include
