Decimals: Comparing (Hundredths Place) Puzzle

Common Core Grade Level: 
Packet includes: 
Four "jokes" that students solve by finding the decimal numbers that solve a set of inequalities.


Students complete inequalities that include whole numbers, numbers with decimals to the tenths place, and numbers with decimals to the hundredths place. The numbers that solve the inequalities are associated with letters. Once the letters are filled in, students will have the solutions to the jokes. Jokes rely on simple word play like, "Why did the man go into the pizza business?" "To make some dough." 


Students should be able to order and compare numbers that have whole numbers (ones place) and decimals (up to hundredths place). Students should also understand how to read greater than (>) and less than (<) symbols. Students must also be able to read at grade level to solve and understand the jokes.
