Our Multiply and Divide by 10 lesson plan helps students learn tips and tricks to make it easier for them to solve math problems in their heads. The lesson begins by introducing base-10 and other place value related vocabulary and also explores exponents. During this lesson, students are asked to solve equations containing exponents and analyze the patterns that emerge when you add one to the exponent every time. Students are also asked to answer questions and solve practice problems where they multiply and divide by 10.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to fluently multiply and divide large numbers using exponents with a base of 10.
