Multiply/Divide by Powers of Ten
Understanding our base 10 system is essential in 5th grade and can often require additional practice and support to master. This packet focuses on multiplication and division of whole and decimal numbers with an emphasis on the value of various place values. Numbers to the right are 1/10 the value of numbers to the left and numbers to the left are ten times greater. Students are asked to solve a variety of problems and provide a written explanation of their thinking.
This product includes four days of practice pages and a quiz which assesses student understanding. This can be used as morning work or for small group differentiated instruction. I have used this in my class as a quick and easy way to assess student understanding and gather data for our standards based report cards. The quiz can also be used as a pre assessment to determine present levels of understanding.

Aligns with Common Core State Standard for Math:
Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.
