Patterning with Decimal Numbers

Working with decimal numbers in growing and shrinking patterns. The patterns may start with a whole or decimal number and grow with increments of tenths or hundredths.

  • Click "Start" to play the games. You will automatically get a level 1 question. Each game has 4 different levels allowing students to choose the level that is right for them. At any time during the game you can choose a different level by clicking the appropriate button on the left side. Each time you answer a question correctly, you earn a point. You can peek at the answer and the pattern rule by clicking the "eye" button, but this would cost you a point that you get back when you click the right answer. The Reveal feature was added mainly for when you need to check your answers and strategies before making a selection. The annotation feature was added to help students and teachers show their work and model problem solving strategies right on the page. Test your skills and practise to improve your personal high score! More resources will be added in the future. These programs can be used as either practice or test and they generate randomized questions and answers! No two tests will ever be exactly same.

Suggested Lessons or Activities:

  • This resource is great for enhancing students' number sense and patterning skills. Discuss strategies commonly used to determine the pattern rule in growing and shrinking patterns. This resource can also be used to improve mental math strategies and speed of basic computations.

Special Features:

  • full screen to expand workspace and minimize distraction
  • Scoreboard for assessment purposes
  • stopwatch (5 minutes)
  • 2 games, different levels
  • ability to reveal answers and the pattern rule for students to check their answers for instant feedback and self-assessment
  • ability to skip as many questions as you want without losing points
  • ability to annotate right on the page to show strategies
  • works very well with Interactive Whiteboards
