Students continue to build their understanding of place value

Students continue to grapple with the relationship between the tenths, hundredths, and thousandths place. It is an abstract concept and one that many students struggle with.

When thinking of a number that is greater than 0.23 but less than 0.24 prompted further practice.  

Using a number line is one visual that may support students when developing their understanding of how these quantities are related.  We will keep working on developing this concept in our next unit!
