# Chapter 3: Addition and Subtraction of Decimals

## Introduction

In Math 6, the learning content is divided into Concepts. Each Concept is complete and whole providing focused learning on an indicated objective. Theme-based Concepts provide students with experiences that integrate the content of each Concept. Students are given opportunities to practice the skills of each Concept through real-world situations, examples, guided practice and independent practice sections. In this third chapter, Adding and Subtracting Decimals, students will engage in many Concepts including decimal place value, reading and writing decimals, decimal money amounts, metric measurement, sums and differences of decimals, stem-and-leaf plots and estimation.
