Resources - Moving Digits


Moving digits is an interactive teaching program (ITP) which allows you to demonstrate the effect of multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. By dragging cards from the set of digit cards, different decimal numbers can be displayed. These decimal numbers can be placed in either of the two middle rows. The cards in the first row move when the multiply or divide buttons are selected. The cards will not move if the result is greater than 99 999 or less than 0.01. The cards in the second row do not move in order to highlight the shift in the digits when multiplying or dividing.
