Multiplying by ten, one hundred, and one thousand and ten thousand –
This activity gives students more practice thinking about the place value movement of digits when dividing by powers of ten. I have included a description sheet discussing why students should not be encouraged to “move” the decimal point, but instead think about digits moving on the numberline.
In this matching activity, students match equation cards with the correct products, then record their solutions on the enclosed recording sheet.
I let students use white boards (I make my own out of white copy paper and page protectors) to think about the solutions rather than on paper – they find it more fun and motivating.
Check out other products in my store ( and listed on the thank you page of this product) that would be a good companion to this one:
