Writing Expanded Form
This worksheet is designed to help students practice converting decimals to their expanded form. It presents a series of decimal numbers, each followed by a blank line where the student is meant to write the number in expanded form. The worksheet features decorative elements, such as a cartoon image of a child with an umbrella and a floral design, as well as a feedback section at the bottom where students can rate how they did with smiley face symbols. The header of the page indicates that it is from a collection of worksheets available on a website.
The primary goal of this worksheet is to reinforce the concept of expanded form, which is a way of breaking down a number to show the value of each digit. By converting decimals into their expanded components, students can better understand place value and the mathematical structure of numbers. This exercise is likely intended for elementary or middle school students who are familiar with decimal notation and are learning to deepen their number sense. It is a part of foundational math skills that will support more complex mathematical concepts in the future.
