**Place Value**

Dwayne Belle Fuller School

**Objectives**:

Students will be able to identify the value of numerals through 10 digit

numerals.

**Materials Needed**:

-blackboard

-chalk

-notebook paper

-monopoly money

-prizes

**Strategy**:

The strategy will incorporate cooperative learning, direct teaching techniques

and a phenomenological approach to mathematics. The direct teaching method

explains the objectives and how to identify the value of numerals through ten

digit numerals. Cooperative learning encourages the students to interact to

formulate the correct answers. The Phenomenological approach challenges the

students' problem-solving skills.

Direct teaching techniques: A short lecture is given on how to identify the

values of numerals through ten digit numerals underlined. Students will have to

identify the place value of the numerals (20 problems); for example, 6,**4**56. The

digit which is underlined is located in the hundreds column. A short lecture is

given to the class on how place value is used in America. The class will

participate in an auction. Each student is given ones, tens, twenties, fifties,

and hundreds. The last step involves the students bidding on prizes. The

highest bidder wins the prize. The winner must explain accurately what column

each digit represents.

Cooperative Learning/Phenomenological Approach: The students will form two

groups and will be given one numeral from 0-9. The place value will be called

orally. The students must line up in direct place value order holding their

numerals; for example, the instructor calls out the number four hundred and

twenty six. The first three students who line up in order from right to left

using ones, tens, and hundreds wins. The first student holds the number six.

The second student holds the number two, which represents the tens column. The

third student holds the number four, which represents the hundreds column.

**Performance Assessment**:

Students will be able to identify place values of the underlined number from

ones to the millions (20 examples on a worksheet).

Students will be able to form numbers from ones to millions using cards.
