              Addition with Decimal Numbers

              Students learn how to perform addition with decimal numbers using place value and the column method.  Number pyramids sums with missing digits are used to challenge the more able.  Less able students are encouraged to use a place value table to aid their working.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the sum of two decimal numbers using the place value table.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the sum of two or more decimals using the column method.
              • Some students should be able to use place value to calculate missing digits in a sum
