This game is a favorite in my class! Students create decimal numbers to multiply by a one digit factor in order to make a product closest to an identified target number. This game promotes critical thinking and application of students' understanding of place value to revise and refine solutions.
Digit cards are included with purchase, but this game can also be played with a standard deck of playing cards.
CCSS5.NBT.B.7 - Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
