Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used as part of a lesson on using the decimal point correctly when using money. The class could be split into groups, each group having some cut-outs of numbers and decimal points. They could watch the clip to clear up any misconceptions and lead to discussions around these. It could be the challenge of each group to make as many correct price amounts (always having to use the decimal point) as they can, with the cut-outs provided. The winning group would then be the one with the most correct combinations.
