Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers.
Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
The teacher needs to understand the relationship between the base ten number system and place value. The teacher must be able to explain that the value of a digit changes depending on where it is located in a number.
Understanding how the value of a digit changes depending on where it is located in a number is essential. In a base ten system, multiplying or dividing a number by 10 changes the value of the digit by one whole place value position.
