This activity asks students to cut out and move tiles to solve multiplication and division equations involving the Powers of Ten. There are multiple sets of tiles (to offer more or less support for students) with this concept.
This is a hands on approach, requiring students to physically move the decimal based on the problem. I created and used this with my own students in mind. I watched them master this skill and gain confidence more quickly than I have in the past as a result of participating in this activity.
This activity comes with a set of task cards with a mixture of expressions and word problems. Teacher Key and "Cheat Sheets" are included.
