Sharpen computation skills by multiplying decimals with an interactive Halloween picture reveal.

Practice Multiplying Decimals with an Interactive Activity!

Have your students mastered how to multiply multi-digit numbers? If so, they may be ready to put this skill into practice with multi-digit decimals. When multiplying these numbers, students use the same standard algorithm as they do with whole numbers but just have to position the decimal point correctly at the end.

To play, open up the presentation in Slideshow Mode. Students will solve a set of 20 questions where they will multiply decimals up through the thousandths place.

Through this activity, students will show they can fluently multiply multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm. 

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your math lessons. 

In addition to individual student work time, use this multiplication activity to enhance learning through guided math groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

For students who may need a bit of support, consider providing a multiplication table to assist with calculations. Additionally, this activity can be completed in a 1-on-1 setting or with a small group.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

If there are students who need a bit of a challenge, encourage them to create their own multiplication problems with decimals and trade with a classmate to solve them.
