What If There Were No Hundreds Place?
Students learn to group numbers by increasingly large groups of ten rather than going to hundreds or thousands.
- Students decide how they're read 340, 621, 835, and 999 if there were no "hundreds" place.
- Students predict how to read 999 + 1.
- Students predict how to read 9999 and 10000.
- Students learn that in other cultures, people do indeed group their larger numbers differently.
