This Power Point introduces students to how the Base Ten System works. The Content Goal of the lesson is "We can show that a digit represents 10 times the value of the digit to the right."
This lesson corresponds with the 4th Grade Standard: 4.NBT. 1. Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
However, it could also be used for reviewing before teaching the 5th Grade standard: 5.NBT.1: 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.
This lesson can be used by the teacher to model the concept, before giving the students a chance to demonstrate their understanding through an exit ticket. Works great for the gradual release model of responsibility.
