1. Finding Place Values in Whole Numbers
After watching this video lesson, you will be able to find the location of any place value that you are given. You will also be able to identify them in any whole number.
2. What is a Decimal Place Value?
In this video lesson, you will see how a decimal, a simple dot, can change the place value of all the digits in a number. You will also learn how to read decimals using place values.
3. What is Expanded Form in Math? - Definition & Examples
In this lesson, we'll review place value and find out how it's useful when writing numbers in expanded form. We'll also look at a few examples of numbers written out in expanded form.
4. Comparing and Ordering Fractions
Comparing and ordering fractions is way to examine fractions that contain different-sized sets. In order to compare these fractions, you must find a common denominator and make equivalent fractions.
5. Comparing and Ordering Decimals
In this video lesson, you'll find out how you can look at any two decimals and immediately tell which is greater than the other. You'll also learn how to quickly sort decimals from least to greatest or vice versa.
6. What Are Equivalent Decimals? - Definition & Examples
Equivalent decimals may look different, but in reality they are just a fancy way of naming the same amount! In this lesson, you will explore equivalent decimals and learn easy tricks to help you master the tools needed to identify and write these equal forms.
7. What are Equivalent Fractions? - Definition & Examples
In this lesson, you'll review some fraction terminology and then learn what equivalent fractions are. Afterward, you can test your new knowledge with a brief quiz.
