Multiply and divide whole numbers and decimals by 10, 100 and 1000 (a) Understand place value for whole numbers, and to two-decimal places

A detailed lesson plan accompanied by a PPT and a lesson objective checker sheet. The lesson recaps place value and introduces students to decimals and using money in practical situations.

This spreadsheet is designed to enable students to check their own work; but also to learn about what happens when you add two decimals, or multiply two fractions, and so on.

The spreadsheet consists of the following sheets:

A lovely selection of quick generic and contextualised whole number and decimal problems to improve mental arithmetic skills.

A short but very effective PPT that uses animation to show how digits are moved to the right/left in a place value chart when multiplying /dividing by 10 and 100. Covers decimals and whole numbers.

Two fill-in tables to practice converting between metric units (and multiplying and dividing decimals by 10 and 100). First covers m and cm, the second in cm and mm.

A rather nifty Word document template where learners can move the digits to the right or left to see the changes in place value when multiplying or dividing decimals by 10, 100 and 1000.

A great version of this tried and tested whole class mental maths activity.

A very topical resource originally written for a group of older returning learners to help them see how maths skills can help in everyday life. Covers decimal place value and ordering; subtracting and multiplying decimals (inc. x10); and finding the range.

Excellent practice in multiplying whole numbers and decimals (money) by 10 and 100. Written for L1 students with an interest in gardening but suitable for any group of L1 learners, including those studying NVQ L1 or L2 Horticulture, Gardening, etc.

Differentiation is easily achieved as the first page covers only multiplying and dividing by 10 (a useful stepping stone for some students). Page 2 covers both x10 and x100.

Covers adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decinmals (inc. mult and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000) and decimal place value. Ideal for introducing these topics or for revision.
