This eBook introduces decimals, the decimal point, its position in a number, decimal notation, locates decimals on a number line, converts fractions to decimals, considers multiplying and dividing decimals by 10 and 100 respectively, and considers rounding decimals to the nearest whole number, tenth, and hundredth as well as considering the equivalents of decimals, fractions and percentages.
This eBook is part of our range of Key Stage 2 (KS2) maths eBooks that are fully aligned with the UK Governments national curriculum.
Our Key Stage 3 (KS2) maths eBooks comprise three principle sections. These are, notably:
•Number and Algebra
•Shape, Space and Measure
In addition, there exists for Key Stage 2 (KS2) a Publications Guide eBook, a Mental Maths eBook and a Times Table Practice eBook. We also produce a combined Key Stage 1 (KS1) and Key
Stage 2 (KS2) Times Table Practice eBook.
Our maths eBooks are produced such as that as well as a Publications Guide, and three principle publications corresponding to the principle sections (Number and Algebra, Shape, Space and Measures as well as Handling Data) there are individual modules produced within each principle section which are published as eBooks.
Decimals is a module within the Number and Algebra principle section our Key Stage 2 (KS2) publications. It is one module out of a total of eight modules in that principle section, the others being:
•Number Patterns and Sequences
•Fractions, Percentages and ratio
•Addition and Subtraction Practice
•Multiplication and Division Practice
After studying Primary School 'KS2 (Key Stage 2) - Maths – Decimals - Ages 7-11' eBook your child or the student should be confidently able to:
-understand and use decimal notation for tenths, hundredths and thousandths as for example dealing with money and converting lengths, such as converting 1.74 meters to centimeters as well to meters.
-locate decimals on a number line as well as order a set of numbers or measurements.
-round a number to zero, one or two decimal places.
-convert between centimeters, millimeters and meters.
-convert between millimeters and meters as well as between meters and kilometers, correctly applying the methods and explaining their reasoning.

About the Author
Upon writing close to 200 maths eBooks and receiving at times some poor reviews, I was shocked somewhat, not by the complexity, majestic beauty and ornate utility of maths, and mathematics, but by the degree of difficulty that so many students of all ages experienced when studying, attempting to study, reviewing or learning from the variety of available mathematical literature. This shock extended not only to the fields of education, but also to the domains of engineering, science, finance, commerce and trade. It was rightfully illuminated, and mindfully made clear that the vast majority of the population had great difficulty reading, assimilating and learning the fundamental principles of this noble subject. No wonder I was being misunderstood !!! Something needed to be done to change this. It was as if people where viewing and reviewing my maths eBooks through the wrong end of the telescope. - just as Dr Seuss indicated. I am, by way of education, training , learning and experience a 'doctor of electronics research', an 'engineer, Architect, scientist' with special interests in 'mathematics, research, communications, electronics, signal processing and internet mobility', language, literature, phonics, music and linguistics' as well as 'art, architecture, archaeology, history, geography and humanities' who has designed, developed, produced and published 5 (five) series of English language mathematics eBooks which are distributed via partnerships including smashwords as well as their distribution partners (Apple, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, et al). Our maths eBooks are of the highest academic quality and suitable as standard as well as supplementary texts for primary and secondary school students of the UK as well as the elementary, middle (junior high), high (secondary) school student market in North America. They are suitable for schoolchildren in the age range 5-18 as well as mature students, particularly those wishing to use SOA (state of the art) mathematical techniques and principles in the engineering, architectural, scientific, medical, financial, data and statistical fields of commerce and business. At Bristol University I studied for an honours degree in electrical and electronic engineering, obtaining a B.Sc.(Eng.) honours degree, and subsequently at Kings College London, University of London, I studied at the prestigious 5* centre for telecommunications research and received both the MPhil (Master of Philosophy) and PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) degree qualifications in electronics research. My PhD thesis' title was 'A Voyage Into Quantum Mobility'. I consider myself to be among the best electronics architects in Europe, but must acknowledge those learned gentlemen who heralded the birth of the Internet in the 1960's and earlier, as well as prior exponents of the 'Founding Fathers of Communication Systems', whose work and expertise I have been able to incorporate into my designs. Ta tu failte.
