Match Fishtank 50 min(s)

In this lesson, students will explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is divided by a power of 10. Divide decimals by powers of 10. Recognize that in a multi-digit decimal, a digit in any place represents 1/10 as much as it represents in the place to its left. Generalize the pattern that dividing a decimal by a power of 10 results in digits in the number shifting one place to the right for each power of 10.
