Decimals and Base Ten Blocks

Participants will play games and do other activities using dice, graph paper, and base ten blocks as a concrete model for understanding the concept of decimals, saying decimal numbers, ordering decimals by size, and operations with decimals. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to teach the concepts covered by a purposeful transition through concrete, pictorial, and symbolic stages of representation and to assess student performance.
