This is the third lesson of a three-lesson unit about tenths and hundredths. Please see "happy hundredths" and "terrific tenths" before attempting this lesson. Students will work with math manipulatives to understand that it takes 100 hundredths or 10 tenths of something to make one whole. They will understand that it takes 10 hundredths to make 1 tenth. They will use manipulatives with money (pennies, dimes, dollars), fractions (one hundredth pieces, one tenth pieces, one whole pieces), and base ten blocks (units, rods, wholes) to show different values. They will express values with combinations of the given manipulatives and draw their solutions.
