Decimal Patterns – Differentiated Worksheets

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Grades: 4 - 5

Practice determining a pattern and next value in a numerical sequence of decimals to the hundredths place.

Add and Subtract Decimals to Determine a Pattern

Are your students working on adding and subtracting decimals? If so, this skill can be used to determine and complete various decimal patterns. Teach Starter has created a set of unique, differentiated worksheets to use in your classroom! This worksheet set has 3 different levels, each marked with stars on either side of the title.

To complete this activity, students must match each question on the left (marked with a number) to each solution on the right (marked with a letter). Use these matching letters and numbers to fill in the answer to the math joke at the bottom of the page.

An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!  

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

In addition to independent student work time, use this worksheet as an activity for:

If there are students who need a challenge, make a “Which One Doesn’t Belong Challenge.” Have students create 4 numerical sequences for the same pattern, 3 correct and 1 incorrect. Then, they can trade with a classmate and determine which sequence is incorrect.

For students who need a bit of support, work one-on-one or in a small group, allow calculator use, or modify the numbers for complexity level (level 1 indicated by 1 star next to the title should be used with students struggling with the concept).
