Unit 1, Lesson 1# Place Value with Decimals: Lesson 1 (Place Value with Whole Numbers)

Match Fishtank 50 min(s)

In this lesson, students will build whole numbers to 1 million by multiplying by 10 repeatedly. Look for and make use of the structure of the place value system, namely that every place value is 10 times as large as the place to its right (e.g., 10,000 is 10 times as large as 1,000). Look for and express regularity in repeated calculations of multiplying 10 by itself some number of times, and explain patterns in the number of zeros in the product.
