Adding Decimals

gough1 You're about to see a music video that will hopefully teach you how to add decimals. My video relates to the real world by using the rising sea level as an example on how to add decimals. My biggest problems I faced while making this video was finding pictures. I tackled this problem by looking up other names of the pictures that I couldn't find. For example, I couldn't find pictures of the ocean so I looked up "Arctic Ocean" and found plenty of pictures. I feel sort of confident that my video meets requirements. I feel this way because it was hard to find good rhythm that went with my voice AND my Garage Band creation. Hopefully, anyone who watches this can learn a thing or two about adding decimals.

Adding Decimals

Ones place, tens place, hundred, thousand, repeated place

Halves, fourths, sixes, and twelves

On the tip, in your Pi, and the amount of space on your library shelves

Who likes rounding, fishing, and loose change

Lets say you have five dollars in your pocket, and want to buy a rocket and it only cost a dollar-seventeen. You put it in your basket and you walk up to a cashier that is really mean. You walk the other way to avoid is stare and you count up all your change in a near by chair. You subtract 1.17 (a dollar seven-teen) from the five dollars in your pocket, (5.00-1.17=3.83)bring down the decimal, and 3.83 (three dollars-eighty-three cents) is the change for your new rocket.

(We use this concept to find things like change, make whole numbers smaller, and to solve math problems)

The sea level has gone up 6.76 inches in the last 100 years. Lets say the sea level today is 10,563.33 inches deep somewhere. How high will the sea level be at that spot in 100 years? Just add 6.76 to 10,563.33, bring down the decimal (6.76+10,563.33=10,570.09) and you get 10,570.09 inches

Money, change, weight, height, digits, prices, percents, distance, time, and sharing
