In this lesson, students use the place value chart to multiply by multiples of 10. To solve 2 × 40, for example, they begin by modeling 2 × 4 in the ones place. Then they relate this to multiplying 2 × 40 (or 2 × 4 tens), where the same basic fact is located in the tens column. They conclude that when multiplied by 10, the digits in the product shift one place value to the left.
