    -Addition and subtraction of decimals (to the hundredths place)
    -Multiplication of decimals by a one-digit number

*This webquest is appropriate for use in a fifth grade mathematics classroom.

*The following TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) are covered:

(5.3)Number, operation, and quantitative reasoning. The
        student adds, subtracts, multiplies, and divides to
        solve meaningful problems. The student is expected
        (A)  use addition and subtraction to solve problems
             involving whole numbers and decimals;
        (B)  use multiplication to solve problems involving
             whole numbers (no more than three digits times
             two digits without technology);
*Required Prior Knowledge:
Before attempting this webquest, students should be able to:
-demonstrate understanding of place value through calculation of addition and subtraction of two or more decimals
-comfortably calculate multiplication of a decimal by a one-digit whole number

*Required Prior Skills:
Before attempting this webquest, students should be able to:
-Navigate the internet with ease

*Possible Modifications:
-It is advised that students be placed in heterogeneous groups. Higher-performing students will be able to help lower-performing students.
-English language learners should be given the job of "recorder." These students should work primarily with numbers and should have little oral or written language responsibility.

-This WebQuest may also be published in 


**This webquest is extremely beneficial because the resources used are constantly updated and maintained. They are based out of successful companies that have been around for a very long time and will hopefully continue to be successful, established companies.
