# Math Lesson Idea.

I have an idea to create a lesson on decimals.  I want to use a slider to have the learner choose the correct place in a decimal.  For example, choose the digit in the tenths place in the following decimal;  3.456.  How would I need to link the slider to the decimal?

I am excited to discover the slider and the possibility of integrating it into a lesson but not sure how to make it interact the way I want it to.

Thanks!

Hi John,

In the attached example, I have compared the variable associated with the slider (Slider1) to the value 4. If it is equal to 4 when the user clicks the Submit button, the Correct layer is shown. If it is not equal to four when the button is clicked, the Incorrect layer is shown.

I hope this is what you were after, but if you have any further queries, just get back to me here.

Thanks Ned!!

Wow, you didn't have to design that!  I really appreciate it!  You're awesome!!

I was on the verge of getting it but was a bit stumped with connecting the slider to the place, and correct/incorrect.  But I did get the slider position to the Place, after watching a video on Youtube.  Baby steps for me... slow and painful!...LOL.

I'll post when I'm done.

Thanks again!!
