Common Core Standard Link 5.NBT.A.1
Common Core Standard Link 5.NBT.A.2
1) Why is Base 10 called Base 10?
2) What are powers of 10?
3) How many times greater is the 1’s place value than the 100ths?
4) How many times smaller is the 10th’s place value than the 100’s?
5) Is there an easy way to multiply and divide with powers of 10?
You can begin class with this Video on how to find the value between digits of a multi-digit number as they will mirror the kind of problems students will see in the Decimal Dungeon .
After the video give the students these sample problems or create your own.
1) In 463.3 the value of the 3 in the ones place is ______ the value as the 3 in the tenths place.
2) in 567.5 the value of the 5 in the tenths place is ______the value as the 5 in the hundreds place.
3) 8734.45 x 1/100=?
4) 345.3 x 100=?
Students will enter the world in single player mode watch videos, observer and build math models, and fight monsters.
Challenge 1) Value between places
Students will observe the math model and count the spaces between the three in the tens place and the 3 in the hundreds place. Then they will answer the question in the computer lock. “The 3 in the tens place is ______ the value as the 3 in the hundredths place.“
Challenge 2) Multiplying and dividing by powers of 10
Students will observe the math model and use a pick axe to break the decimal and move it to the correct place. Once in place push the button to check your answer and open the door to the next cell.
1) What is an easy way to multiply and divide by powers of 10?
2) How did the math models and help you understand how to multiply and divide by powers of 10?
1) The student was able to determine the value of a digit compared to another digit.
2) The student was able to explain how in a multidigit number, a digit in one place represents ten times the digit to its right and 1/10 of what it represents to the left.
3) The student was able to easily multiply and divide by powers of ten by moving the decimal place to the right or left.
4) The student was able to receive a score of 2 or higher on each standard.
