Use a place value chart to show how place value increases to the left in a multi-digit number

Big Ideas: Each place value to the left of another is ten times greater than the one to the right. Decimal place value is similar to whole number place value. This standard calls for students to reason about the magnitude of numbers. Students work with the idea that the tens place is ten times as much as the ones place, and the ones place is 1/10th the size of the tens place. This relationship is extended to tenths, hundredths, and thousandths in fifth grade. In fourth grade, students examined these same relationships of the digits for whole numbers only. Vocabulary: tenths, hundredths, thousandths, large cube, flats, rods, and units, base ten blocks, ten times, one-tenth Special Materials: base ten blocks: large cube, flats, rods, and units place value chart
