This report summarizes what research says about the learning and teaching of decimal fractions and suggests some instructional strategies and activities to improve learning. Decimal fractions ordinarily are introduced in grade 4 or 5 and are treated intensively in grades 6 and 7. Research has focused on students at these grade levels, although some studies have included high school students. The following presents some of the significant findings obtained primarily from studies of students in conventional instructional programs in the United States and other countries.
