Unit 5,Place Value in Whole Numbers and Decimals, has three main areas of focus:
-To extend previous lessons on the base-ten system to whole numbers through millions and to decimals through thousandths
-To apply these concepts to reading, writing, comparing and ordering whole numbers and decimals
-To use whole numbers and decimals in real-life contexts.
