This workbook offers fun activities on fractions and decimals! On page 1, Walter, Olga, and Octavia need your help with their orders at Nautical Nibbles Bakery. Are you up for the challenge? On page 2, lend a hand to Megan at Twin Palms Animal Rehab & Rescue for 5 adding and subtracting decimal questions. Once you are done, head back to Nautical Nibbles Bakery for some multiplying and dividing decimal activities. Read the clues and complete all the questions.

One of the more complex pages in this workbook is dividing fractions. Dividing fractions can pose significant challenges for a 6th-grade student. Students often need help with the abstract nature of fractions themselves, finding it hard to grasp the idea of parts of a whole and how these parts interact. When it comes to division, the concept of inverting the divisor (multiplying by the reciprocal) can be particularly confusing, as it seems counterintuitive compared to whole-number division, which they are more familiar with.

Decimal operations are covered on pages 2 through 5. In 6th grade, students should understand that decimal operations include addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of decimal numbers. When adding or subtracting, it is important to line up the decimal points to ensure that each place value (tenths, hundredths, thousandths, etc.) is correctly aligned. For multiplication, students should know how to multiply as if the numbers were whole numbers and then place the decimal point in the product, counting total decimal places from the factors. For division, students should be able to move the decimal point in the divisor to make it a whole number and do the same shift in the dividend, then proceed with the division as if they were dividing whole numbers. Understanding these processes helps ensure accuracy and builds a strong foundation for more advanced math concepts.
