Fun with Place Value
Hi Boys and Girls,
We will be multiplying tenths, hundredths, and thousandths by 1000 and 10 000 today in class. We will be using the base-ten manipulatives and place value charts to help us learn this concept.
We will spend half our math period solving math problems. Then we will have a math challenge. The class will be split in two groups and we will do a math bee competition. The challenge will be to correctly answer the most questions on the multiplication of decimal numbers by factors of 10 (eg., using 10, 100, 1000 or 10 000). Let the fun begin!
Here are some great sites for those students who want to start the fun early.
