Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free adding decimals worksheet of 30+ questions and answers
Decimal numbers can be added in the same way as integers. The important thing to consider when adding decimals is place value. Tenths should be added to tenths, hundredths to hundredths, thousandths to thousandths etc.
When using column addition to add decimals, the key is to ensure the decimal points are lined up. The values in each column can then be added in the same way that we work with whole numbers.
A common application of decimal addition is money.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional decimals worksheets and other number worksheets, for example a multiplying and dividing decimals worksheet or an order of operations worksheet.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
