MA.4.NSO.1.3

Plot, order and compare multi-digit whole numbers up to 1,000,000.

Examples

The numbers 75,421; 74,241 and 74,521 can be arranged in ascending order as 74,241; 74,521 and 75,421.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: When comparing numbers, instruction includes using an appropriately scaled number line and using place values of the hundred thousands, ten thousands, thousands, hundreds, tens and ones digits.

Clarification 2: Scaled number lines must be provided and can be a representation of any range of numbers.

 Clarification 3: Within this benchmark, the expectation is to use symbols (<, > or =).

My Digit is Bigger than Your Digit! Comparing Multi-digit Numbers:

In this lesson, the students will explore place value using manipulatives to help them compare multi-digit numbers in the context of the book A Million Dots by Andrew Clements.

Type: Lesson Plan

Slither Not in the Everglades! Python MEA:

This MEA will ask students to work in teams to help their client, The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, to decide which Burmese python traps manufacturing company to buy traps from. The traps will be placed along the Florida Keys and the Everglades to help prevent the growth of invasive Burmese Python population. The students will implement their knowledge of how plants, animals, and humans impact the environment, use mathematical and analytical problem-solving strategies, and be able report their finding in an organized, descriptive manner.

Type: Lesson Plan

The Street Where Place Value Lives:

Students will apply their place value knowledge to connect place value to the millions by relating it to their communities. Students can discuss and write about place value, using their connections.

Type: Lesson Plan

Oh Where, Oh Where, Should I Put You?:

This highly engaging game is played after the unit on place value has been taught. It is designed to allow the student to think about the placement of a number before writing it down, in order to write the largest and/or smallest number.
