Dividing by ten, one hundred, and one thousand –
This activity gives students more practice thinking about the place value movement of digits when dividing by powers of ten. I have included a description sheet discussing why students should not be encouraged to “move” the decimal point, but instead think about digits moving on the numberline.
In this I have…who has… activity, it doesn’t matter which card students choose to get started with. They are designed to cycle back to the start from wherever this activity starts.
I let students use white boards (I make my own out of white copy paper and page protectors) to think about the solutions rather than on paper – they find it more fun and motivating.
