This project focuses on the place value. Students will choose a number to represent in standard form and create two aliases for this number (the number name and expanded form of the same number). This number is “wanted” for committing math crimes, so students will need to charge this number with crimes related to math, and then, of course, offer a reward for the capture of this criminal!

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to write numbers in standard form, expanded form, and numbers names.
