MAFS.5.NBT.1.2

Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.

General Information

Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 5
Domain-Subdomain: Number and Operations in Base Ten

Rounding Decimal Numbers - Lesson #2:

This is lesson 2 of 3 in the Rounding Decimal Numbers unit. This lesson introduces Traditional Rounding method to determine an estimated value rounded to a specific place value. This lesson bridges the concepts of fractions to decimals and powers of ten as well expanded notation to rounding methods.

This lesson uses flowchart model to describe the method in which the rounding is performed. Rounded numbers are verified using a Scratch activity in this lesson.

Seeking Patterns Using Base 10 and Powers of 10:

This lesson focuses on the exploration of patterns in the number of zeros of the product, when multiplying a number by powers of 10. It also uses whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.

Patterns divided by a power of ten should be done in a subsequent lesson, once the students have the basic understanding of multiplying base ten by exponents.

Patterns using decimals should be done in a subsequent lesson, once the students have the basic understanding using whole numbers.

Intro to Multiplying Decimals by 10, 100, 1000:

In this lesson, students are introduced to multiplying decimals by 10, 100, and 1000, in which students begin by creatively solving word problems. Students will analyze the number sentences used to solve the word problems, looking for and recording patterns and discovering that each place value has a value ten times as much as the place to its right, which is why each time a number is multiplied by 10, the digits move one place to the left.
