Are you struggling with showing your students the skilly of multiplying and dividing decimals by powers of 10? I teach my students two strategies for this:
- Move the digits in a place value chart
- Move the decimal point
Watch for specific examples on how to INTERACTIVELY teach multiplying and dividing decimals by powers of ten with your students.
It’s helpful to see decimal numbers on a place value chart so that students can physically move them and see how they increase or decrease by powers of 10 as they move the digits left and right. This is also helpful when used on an interactive place value chart.
