CC 4.NBT.1
Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.

For example, recognize that 700 รท 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division. (Grade 4 expectations in this domain are limited to whole numbers less than or equal to 1,000,000.)

Key Advances

  • Students generalize their previous understanding of place value for multidigit whole numbers ( CC 4.NBT.1, CC 4.NBT.2, CC 4.NBT.3 ). This supports their work in multidigit multiplication and division, carrying forward into grade 5, when students will extend place value to decimals.
