Task

Tenths and Hundredths

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is for students to explore the relationship between tenths and hundredths (as well as the relationship between tens and hundreds). They will grapple with the common misconception that because 10 tens equals 1 hundred, then 10 tenths must equal 1 hundredth. Pushing students to link visuals with their reasoning will help them self-correct. Moreover, the teacher can assist by asking students to think about what one whole would be and reminding them that 1 tenth must represent 1 tenth of the whole and 1 hundredth must represent 1 hundredth of the whole.
