This unit uses an investigation approach to help students discover the thousandths place. It aligns to the Common Core Math Practice Standards. Students discover the thousandths place through creating a new coin that is follows the patterns in the place value system. Students are encouraged to sketch and explain the patterns they notice within our system. Students deepen their understanding of place value through a challenging puzzle entitled "Chore Challenge." A mini lesson follows this activity to discuss word form, standard form, place, and value of a number. Another investigation titled "Theme Park Land Plots," allows students to discover expanded notation. A mini lesson follows this activity that compares the standard way to write expanded form and the new way. This unit includes many assessment tools along the way.
