**(Please ask your child to show you what they learned about flats, rods, and cubes, and how they can be used to show the value of decimals!!!)**

4.NF Understand decimal notation for fractions and compare decimal fractions.

(Students pictured here are modeling decimals and fractions with flats, rods, and cubes.)

MCC4.NF.5 Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100. For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/1001.

MCC4.NF.6 Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.

MCC4.NF.7 Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of the comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g. by using a visual model.
