Decimal Operations
The below QQI Relay © shows one question at a time, and to proceed to the next question, you need to answer the current one correctly. Decide how many questions you want (you can always finish early if need be).
Then choose the attributes for the questions that will appear.
You can select a choice of one, two, or three decimal places for the questions, as well as choosing the mixed option, which will randomly set each number to a one of these choices.
You can then choose whether the numbers will be purely decimals, have an integer part to them or be one of each.
Finally, select the operation you wish to use.
If you wish to make the activity slightly easier (particularly for multiplcation and division), then by selecting Yes you can make one of the numbers always a whole number.
All answers are given to 6 decimal places.
When the questions appear, type your answer in the boxand click Check Answer to see if you are right. If correct, move on to the next question.

Ideas for Teachers
This activity requires each pupil to have access to a computer or other internet enabled device. They will each get a different random set of questions, and at the end you can see how they did in the results table. This is great for spicing up an activity as it adds an element of competition to the work.
Get them to set a high number of questions, such as 100, and then get students to answer as many as possible in 5 or 10 minutes. Have a prize for the one with the highest point score (awarding accuracy and speed).
