Interactive Math Lesson - Place Value Decimals to Thousandths

In this interactive math activity geared toward fifth-grade, students will practice place value with decimals to the thousandths. Students will answer place value questions presented in a variety of formats, including drag-and-drop, fill-in-the-blank, and multiple-choice. Upon completion of this online math game, students will have gained a greater understanding and proficiency in advanced place value concepts.

Here are some types of math problems your students may be required to answer in this place value lesson. Students may be asked to identify the value of the underlined digit in a given number. Or they may be asked to drag the digits to show the decimal in standard form. Or they may be required to determine which digit is in the hundredths place (or tenths place, or thousandths place). If students need a little extra help answering a place value question, they can click on the "Hint" button available to them. The hint will display a written or pictorial clue that will point students in the right direction. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will show them the right answer so they can learn from mistakes as they move through the lesson.

All math lessons on I Know It are equipped with several tools that help students make the most of their math practice session. Students can check out the progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of their practice screen to see how many questions they have answered so far in the lesson. They can also take a look at the score-tracker to see how many points they've earned so far. If students would like the question read out loud to them in a clear voice, they can click on the speaker icon in the upper-left corner of the practice screen. This is a great option for ESL/ELL students and children who are auditory processors.
