# Math: Chapter Three

Chapter Three:  Decimals

Introduction:  Most statistics in sports are reported as decimals.  In basketball a player who made 52 of 60 free throws would have a “free throw percentage” of 0.867.  In this chapter, the student will learn about decimals and how to use them to solve problems.

Focus:  Use common procedures to multiply and divide decimals, and evaluate expressions and solve equations with decimals.
