    Self Check

    ⓐ After completing the exercises, use this checklist to evaluate your mastery of the objectives of this section.

    This is a table that has six rows and four columns. In the first row, which is a header row, the cells read from left to right “I can…,” “Confidently,” “With some help,” and “No-I don’t get it!” The first column below “I can…” reads “name and write decimals,” “round decimals,” “add and subtract decimals,” “multiply and divide decimals,” and “convert decimals, fractions and percents.” The rest of the cells are blank.

    ⓑ What does this checklist tell you about your mastery of this section? What steps will you take to improve?
