This is a worksheet in which students segmented a number line to reflect their understanding of large numbers. Students work with numbers from 100 to 1,500,000. This helps to strengthen number sense with fractions and whole numbers. This activity is from the Financial Literacy: First Steps unit. "Financial Literacy: First Steps" is designed to develop students' basic knowledge of some of the life skills our students will need when they deal with the real economic world. Our unit includes personal budgeting, needs versus wants, wages, banking, taxes, and protecting one's personal financial resources. At the conclusion of the study, students will know the finances of employment, how to apply reliable information and systematic decision-making to personal financial decisions, and recognize and accept differences among peers' values and attitudes about money.
