# Determine whether a number is odd or even by looking at the ones place

Big Ideas: 10 is an even numbers because it makes equal pairs and 2 equal groups without anything left over. Since 10 and any amount of tens are even the digit in the ones place determines if a number is odd or even. This lesson builds on students' work with odd and even numbers and place value. In this task, students have a list and will identify which prizes can be shared equally between 2 sisters. Students will learn how to identify a number as odd or even by looking at the digit in the ones place. This will help them identify numbers larger than 20 as odd or even. This concept builds towards students' future work with multiplication. Vocabulary: place value, odd, even, digit, ones Special Materials: counters
