Lesson 10
Ten Times As Much
Lesson Purpose
The purpose of this lesson is to write equations to represent the relationship between the value of digits in multidigit numbers.
Lesson Narrative
In the previous lesson, students wrote multidigit numbers in expanded form to highlight the value of each digit. They also described the “ten times” relationship between the value of a digit in one place and the value of the same digit in the place to its right. In this lesson, students use multiplication and division equations to represent this relationship.
