Dash & Dot: Place Value Game (Gr. 45)
Description
Understanding place value requires practicing its principles in many different ways. In this lesson, students will play games to practice reading, writing, and comparing numbers using baseten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
Objectives

Read and write multidigit whole numbers using baseten numerals, number names, and expanded form.

Compare multidigit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

Read and write decimals to thousandths using baseten numerals, number names, and expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 × (1/100) + 2 × (1/1000).

Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
