Maths multiplying & dividing decimals by 10,100 & 1000 Year 6

In this lesson, students will work towards the objective: To identify the value of each digit in numbers given to three decimal places and multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 giving answers up to three decimal places.

They will first revisit the place value of numbers with up to 3 decimal places, looking at the value of digits and missing place values in numbers. They will then look at multiplying and dividing decimals by 10,100 and 1000: they will experiment with a place value grid looking for patterns between the numbers when multiplied or divided. A number of questions on the board will allow them to practise this skill. Finally they will complete a worksheet which challenges them to recognise patterns, answer word problems and create their own calculations for a partner.

This is an engaging lesson which comes with an interactive power point presentation and all corresponding activity worksheets. It is designed for Year 6 but could easily be modified to suit lower KS2 and KS3.
