Time to Tile: Decimal Place Value on a Number Line is a hands-on activity that takes students’ thinking beyond procedures and rote memorization. This engaging resource activates critical thinking and problem-solving skills, all while developing algebraic thinking. Students must place 10 number tiles (0-9) on the Time to Tile cards in order to identify various decimal numbers on number lines. Each number line is created based on a “zoomed in” portion of the number line above it, which helps students to recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
This resource is now provided in printable and digital formats (Google Slides).
This resource includes:
- 30 different Time to Tile cards
- An “Answer Recording Sheet,” where students can record their answers so they can be corrected later. This allows the resource to be used as a perfect independent or center activity.
- Answer keys
- Management and organization tips for successfully implementing Time to Tile in your classroom.
