**Addition:**When adding decimal numbers, align the decimal points and then add as usual.**Subtraction:**Similar to addition, align the decimal points and subtract as usual.**Multiplication:**Multiply the numbers as if they were whole numbers, and then place the decimal point in the answer based on the total number of decimal places in the original numbers.**Division:**Perform division as if the numbers were whole numbers, then adjust the decimal point in the quotient accordingly.

- Understand place value: Recognize the value of each decimal place.
- Addition and Subtraction: Practice aligning decimal points and performing these operations.
- Multiplication: Learn to count the total decimal places in the factors and position the decimal point in the product accordingly.
- Division: Practice long division and learn how to adjust the decimal point in the quotient.
- Real-world problems: Solve word problems involving decimal operations to apply your skills.

Grade 7 Curriculum Focal Points (NCTM)

Number and Operations and Algebra: Developing an understanding of operations on all rational numbers and solving linear equations

Students extend understandings of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, together with their properties, to all rational numbers, including negative integers. By applying properties of arithmetic and considering negative numbers in everyday contexts (e.g., situations of owing money or measuring elevations above and below sea level), students explain why the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing with negative numbers make sense. They use the arithmetic of rational numbers as they formulate and solve linear equations in one variable and use these equations to solve problems. Students make strategic choices of procedures to solve linear equations in one variable and implement them efficiently, understanding that when they use the properties of equality to express an equation in a new way, solutions that they obtain for the new equation also solve the original equation.
