Building on their fifth grade experiences with operations on decimal numbers, sixth grade students should find the task to be relatively easy. The emphasis her is on whether students are actually fluent with the computations, so teachers could use this as a formative assessment task if they monitor how students solve the problem. Students who struggle with this task in sixth grade will need extra support.
