PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

NEW PRODUCT! Enjoy... this is a good unit. The word problems are two step and really got my kids to think. Love it.

I was teaching my students how to multiply and divide with base ten exponents and I realized how perfectly this skill aligns with converting in the metric system. This unit was created to practice 5.NBT.2 by using measurement as the context. Wow... first time I nailed the metric system the first day introduced.

Measurement 5.MD.1

This unit contains a scripted lesson.
Practice worksheets and answer key
Four open response formative assessments using word
problems increasing in difficulty
16 conversion task cards with multistep word problems.

5.MD.1
This unit is designed to use a mnemonic device to find the conversion factor needed using base ten with exponents. Lesson activities are designed to decrease teacher dependency and increase student mastery of this skill.

4.MD.1 and 4.MD.2
It can be used with 4th grade students, but be sure to spend time explaining the base ten with exponent is related to multiplying tens. 4th grade students can multiply tens easily, so only need to convert the exponential notation to standard form.
10^3 =10 ×10×10 or × 1,000
*4th grade students only convert from a bigger unit to smaller unit. I suggest skipping the division problems altogether or keep them for enrichment.
