Math Mammoth Decimals 2 is a book about decimal place value and the four operations with decimals. It is most suitable for 5th and 6th grades.

The book starts with a short review of previously learned concepts (studied in Math Mammoth Decimals 1): place value with tenths and hundredths, and adding and subtracting decimals that have tenths and hundredths.

The rest of the book is spent learning the four operations of decimals with numbers that have up to three decimal digits, and especially concentrating on decimal multiplication and division. We start by learning place value, comparing, and rounding decimals (tenths, hundredths, and thousandths). After that follow addition and subtraction, and then various multiplication and division topics.

I have strived to emphasize mental calculations based on conceptual understanding of decimals, and for that end the text also often includes little tips or "tricks" that help with mental calculations. Along with all that, the book has lessons on long multiplication and long division with decimals. Problems that show a small picture of a calculator are meant to be solved with the help of a calculator. Otherwise, a calculator should not be allowed in solving the problems.

The last lessons deal with converting between customary units of measurement and problem solving. They are included here since the problems involve the usage of decimal numbers, and also because the material for this book comes from Math Mammoth Grade 5 Curriculum, which includes those problem solving lessons.

After studying Math Mammoth Decimals 2, the student should understand how to perform all four operations with decimals. However, please note that this book does not practice these operations with decimals that have more than three decimal digits. Students in sixth grade or higher should also solve problems with much longer decimals. For fifth grade, I feel this book covers the topics sufficiently.

We also offer videos that match the lessons in this book

The PDF version of this book can be filled in on a computer, phone, or tablet, using the annotation tools found in many PDF apps. See more.
