One of the most difficult math standards that an interactive place value chart has helped me teach is showing students how a digit in one place value is worth ten times more than the same digit in the place value to its right. Allowing students to physically move digits to see them increase and to be able to visually compare two numbers to each other has helped tremendously in my classroom.
4th Grade Skills the Chart is Great For
- recognizing that the digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its’ right (4.NBT.1)
- reading and writing numbers in various forms and showing the number on the chart (4.NBT.2)
- comparing numbers (4.NBT.2)
- rounding (4.NBT.3)
- adding and subtracting numbers by lining up their place values (4.NBT.4)
