Apples and Pencil
This worksheet is a mathematics practice tool designed to help students understand and work with decimals. It presents a list of ten decimal numbers, each followed by an empty line, where students are instructed to write the numbers in expanded form. The worksheet is decorated with themed illustrations, including an apple and a pencil, to visually engage students.
The worksheet’s educational goal is to teach students to convert decimal numbers into their expanded form, which breaks down each number by its place value. This task helps students grasp the value of digits in different decimal places and reinforces their comprehension of the decimal system. Practicing expanded form is essential in building a strong foundation for more complex mathematical operations involving decimals. Through this exercise, students enhance their numerical literacy and learn to recognize the significance of each digit in a decimal number.
