Place Value with Decimals: Lesson 8 (Place Value with Decimals)

Match Fishtank 50 min(s)

In this lesson, students will explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied by any power of 10. Recognize that in a multi-digit decimal, a digit in any place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right. Understand that a digit in one place (including decimal places) represents 10 times what it represents in the place to its right, 100 times what it represents two places to its right, etc. A common misconception when multiplying decimals by 10 is that one just adds a zero to the end of the number, which with decimals does not change the value of the number.
