Express powers of ten, using exponents.
Understand that when multiplying a whole number by a power of ten, the product will have an increased number of zeros, that has a direct relationship to the exponent.
Understand that multiplying and dividing by a power of ten relates to the placement of a decimal point in a number.
Power of 10, Exponent, Place Value
- Students learned when multiplying decimals by powers of 10 the number is increasing by moving the decimal point over to the right by the amount of zeros.
- Students practiced multiplying decimals by a power of 10
Create symmetrical figures (using understandings that a figure does not change in a symmetrical transformation).
Define translational symmetry.
Understand a translation as a movement (shift or slide) of a figure in a specified direction through a specified distance without any rotation or reflection.
Translational symmetry, Coordinate plane
- Students learned translational symmetry is moving a 2D shape in a specific direction for a specific distance.
- Students graphed a 2D shape on a coordinate plane and practiced translating the shape by the given distance from a specific point.
