**Unit 1- Place Value concepts with Whole Numbers and Decimal Numbers**

**MGSE5.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.

**MGSE5.NBT.2** Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.

**MGSE5NBT.3** Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.

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

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

**MGSE5.NBT.4** Use place value understanding to round decimals up to the hundredths place.

During the first three weeks of school, we will focus on the above concepts with respect to decimal numbers. We will start out by reviewing the concepts with whole numbers while focusing on using precise grade level math vocabulary. Students will be exposed to various forms of questioning and will be asked to answer in variety of forms as well.
