UnboundEdGrade 5 Standards Guide: Number & Operations in Base Ten

Supporting grades: 5

Description: Explanations and examples of how to implement the Number & Operations in Base Ten standards in Grade 5. This task highlights the common misconception that students have when multiplying a decimal (rather than a whole number) by a power of 10. Students will sometimes append a zero to the right of the decimal point, but not move the decimal point to account for the power of 10, as illustrated by Marta's response in the task.
