Product Description
Are you working on the math standard "multiplying decimals by powers of 10 or dividing decimals by powers of 10" or do your kids just need a little review of moving the decimals point left or right when multiplying or dividing decimals?

In this game, students will be presented with a basic multiplication or division problem where they either multiply or divide a decimal by a power of ten. Ex. they may land on a space that has "56.74 x 10 (power of 2) " or "965.523 ÷ 10 (power of 3). The powers range from powers of 2 all the way to powers of 7.

NOTE: The game uses the exponent written in a superscript form, but it was difficult to do that in this description when giving the example above. The preview shows how they are written on the game board.

How does the game work? Students will roll, solve, and then go. On a student's turn, they will roll the dice one time. They will then move that many spaces. They will then solve the multiplication or division problem.Their partner will check the answer on the key. If they get it right, they get to move ahead one more space. If they miss it, they move back 3 spaces. The first one to the end wins the game.

**Please, ... if you are unsure about anything with the game or you have questions, I would appreciate if you send me a message before purchasing. I want you to be happy with the activity. :-) Thank you.**

NOTE: This is a black/white game with black line graphics. There is NOT a color copy included. When I created this for my own class, I decided to make something that took few copies, something that would save my ink, something that had easy directions, and was very little prep work. :-)

This multiplying and dividing decimals by powers of 10 will work perfectly as a math center during math rotations.

Please look closely at the thumbnails and preview to make sure the decimals I chose will work for you.

For this game, you will need a dice, game markers, the game board, the answer key, and possibly notebook paper.

Your students are sure to have fun as they play.
