Decimal Addition on the Wii

12 Jun

We’ve been using the Wii to generate some data for our maths. Have a look at the image above. What is the total distance jumped by the characters we played (Tails and Donkey Kong)? What is the total for the top three in the table? What top tips have you got for adding decimals?

    The total of tails and DK was 10.485
    and the sum of the top 3 (Peach, Amy, Shadow) was 24.714. My top tip is to column addition your way around it. 😛 You may find that you get confused if you dont use that method! :O

      Well done AM. How about if adding numbers with 2 decimal places?

    I agree with RC about the column addition way around adding and subtracting the scores of the Athletes/Characters.
