Decimals Explained

presentationStudents have been learning about Decimals in Math.  Today we are going to start making presentations explaining decimals. Students are assigned to work either alone or in groups of 2-3 to create a presentation that explains what decimals are and how they work.

Students may choose one of the following formats for their presentation.

  • Paper slide video
  • Video presentation
  • Powerpoint presentation (self-running and recorded)
  • Web-page or Blog entry
  • Bitstrip comic
  • Poster

Presentations must be self-running (they don’t need a presenter to explain them)

Students will be marked on the rubric in the link below:

Math rubric – Universal
