# Hopper: tenths

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Description
Help a frog to jump along a number line. Estimate the finishing point on a number line, after adding or subtracting multiples of tenths to a starting number. For example, 29.5+(12 x 0.2) = 31.9. Explore the patterns made on a counting grid and number line. Identify counting rules that match the pattern of 'landing spots' on a counting grid. This learning object is one in a series of seven objects.
Objective
1. Students read decimal notation, count forward and backward using different whole number representations, including number lines and number grids.
2. Students identify patterns found when counting decimal fractions and make predictions with regard to counting sequences.
3. Students recognize how place value impacts on notation in counting sequences and the relationship between counting repeated additions and multiplication.
