CONTENT OF THE LESSON

LESSON 1 – INTRODUCTORY ACTIVITIES

Counting numbers are also called whole numbers.

These are the set or pattern of numbers.

They are natural or positive numbers that we use to learn how to count. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and so on.

2. 325 071

Three hundreds twenty-five thousands, and seventy-one.

 

3. 721 361

Hint,

1  – one

60 + 1 – sixty-one

300 + 61 – three hundred sixty-one

1 000 + 361 – one thousand, three hundred sixty-one

20 000 + 1 361 – twenty-one thousand, three hundred sixty-one

700 000 + 21 361 – seven hundred twenty-one thousand, three hundred sixty-one

 

QUICKEST WAYS OF WRITING IN FIGURES 

Instructions:

  • Cancel the billion, thousands and hundreds
  • Replace and with 1 zero, if the number is in ten or 2 zeros (or more) if it is in unit.
  • For example, and 51 is 051 while and five is 005 or 21 million and 2 – 21 000 002
  • Replace words with exact figures.
  • Let the commas ( , ) remain.

 

Example – Seven hundred twenty-one thousand, three hundreds sixty-one.

[mediator_tech]

 

7 hundreds 21 thousands, 3 hundreds 61.

721 261

 

4. 4 hundred 75 thousand, 9 hundred 0 2.

475 902

 

LESSON 2 – READING AND WRITING IN MILLIONS 

ACTIVITY 1

READ AND WRITE IN MILLIONS 

We read and write in millions when there are more than six (6) digits in a number.

When writing whole numbers in million, it is very important to group the digits from the rightmost in threes (3s) if it is not not or separated by comma ( , ).

Each group of three can be separated by comma or space. The grouping will help you to read and write.

For example, the first group in hundreds, follow by thousands and last is million.

That’s,

MILLIONS          THOUSANDS           HUNDREDS 

H    T    U                H    T    U                 H    T    U

1     0     0                0    0    0                  0    0    0

 

ACTIVITY 2

READING AND WRITING WHOLE NUMBERS IN WORDS 

Guide pupils to group in 3s, read and write:

1. 347840

2. 85048602

 

SOLUTIONS

1. 347840 – 347,840 or 347 840

Guide:

  • Three hundred forty-seven thousands,
  • Eight hundred forty.

 

Read loud and clear Three hundred forty-seven thousand, eight hundred forty.

 

2. 85048602 – 85,048,602 or 85 045 602

MILLIONS    THOUSANDS    HUNDREDS   

H   T   U           H   T   U             H   T   U

0    8   5            0    4   8             6    0   2

 

READING BY PART 

  • Eighty-five millions
  • And forty-eight thousands
  • Six hundred and two

 

Read loud and clear – Eighty-five million, and forty eight thousand, six hundred and two.

 

ACTIVITY 3

READING AND WRITING WHOLE IN FIGURE

The minimum digits for million is seven (7) while maximum is nine (9). Million is in three (3) categories –

[mediator_tech]

 

  • The unit million has seven digit number.
  • The ten million has 8 digit number.
  • The hundred billions has 9 digit number.

 

Guide pupils to read and write:

Example 1.

Seventy five million, five hundred ten.

Seventy five million – 75 million (75 + 6 zero) = 75 000 000

Five hundred ten – (500 + 10) hundred = 510

75 000 000

500

+               10

_____________

75 000 510

 

2. Eight hundred twenty-two million, one hundred thirty-one thousand, five hundred and eight.

Eight hundred twenty-two million – (800 + 22) million = 822 + 6 zeros = 822 000 000

One hundred thirty-one thousand – (100 + 31) thousands  = 131 thousands – 131 000

Five hundred eight – (500 + 8) = 508

822 000 000

131 000

+              508

_____________

822 131 508

 

CLASS WORK 

Write these in words and figures:

[mediator_tech]

 

1. 444,444,444

2. 999,086

3. Two hundred and seventy-four million, nine hundred and three thousand, two hundred and eighty.

4. Three hundred and ten million, five hundred and seventy thousand, six hundred and ninety-one.

 

LESSON 3 – READING AND WRITING IN BILLIONS

READ AND WRITE IN BILLIONS 

Billions are more than 9 digits in a number. Just like millions, billions are in this group –

BILLIONS           MILLIONS          THOUSANDS           HUNDREDS

H    T    U              H    T    U                H    T    U                 H    T    U

Read loud and clear, Eight hundred seventy-one billion, five hundred and four million, eight hundred sixty thousand, two hundred and six. 

 

ACTIVITY 4

READING AND WRITING WHOLE IN FIGURE

The minimum digits for billions are 10 while maximum is 12.  That’s,

  • The unit billions has 10 digit number.
  • The ten billions has 11 digit number.
  • The hundred billions has 12 digit number.

 

Guide pupils to group in read and write:

Example 1.

[mediator_tech]

 

Five billion, two hundred twenty-four million, eight hundred and three thousand, one hundred thirty.

 

METHOD 1

Note, the number in words is in part and separated by comma ( , ). Guide the pupils to split and add.

1st split

Five billion – 5 billion (5 + 9 zeros)

That’s, 5 000 000 000

2nd split

Two hundred twenty-four million = (200 + 24) millions = 224 millions (224 + 6 zero)

That’s, 224 000 000

3rd split 

Eight hundred and three thousands = (800 + 3) thousands = 803 millions (803 + 3 zero)

That’s, 803 000

Final split 

One hundred thirty = (100 + 30) hundreds = 130

5 000 000 000

224 000 000

803 000

+               120

_________________

9 224 803 103

 

METHOD 2

That’s, Five billion, two hundred twenty-four million, eight hundred zero three thousand, one hundred thirty.

[mediator_tech]

 

5 billion, 2 hundred 24 million, 8 hundred 0 3 thousand, 1 hundred 30 = 5, 224, 803, 130

 

Example 2

Twenty-one billion, five hundred million, and fourteen thousand, two hundred seventy-four.

 

METHOD 1

Split 1

Twenty-one billion

21 + 9 zeros

21 000 000 000

Split 2 

Five hundred million

500 + 6 zeros

5 000 000

Split 3

Fourteen thousand

14 + 3 zeros

14 000

Split 4 

Two hundred seventy-four

200 + 74

274

 

21 000 000 000

500 000 000

14 000

+              274

_____________

21 500 014 274

 

METHOD 2

Twenty-one billion, five hundred million, and fourteen thousand, two hundred seventy-four.

[mediator_tech]

 

21 billion, 500 million, 0 14 thousand, 247.

21 500 014 247

Therefore,

Twenty-one billion, five hundred million, and fourteen thousand, two hundred seventy-four = 21, 500, 014, 274

 

CLASS WORK 

Write these in words and figures:

1. 444, 444,444,444

2. 109 999 086 000

3. Thirty-seven billion, nine hundred and ten million, seventeen thousand, four hundred and twenty-five.

4. One hundred and ten billion, two hundred and thirty-five million, forty-three thousand, nine hundred and seventy-eight.

 

LESSON 4 – VALUE AND PLACE VALUE OF WHOLE NUMBERS

ACTIVITY 1 

A whole number is a number without a fraction or decimal.

Every digit in a number, for example, 7 123 840 has the value and place value of each digit as follows:

From the rightmost position,

0 – 0 unit

40 – 4 tens

800 – 8 hundreds

3 000 – 3 thousands

20 000 – 2 ten thousands

100 000 – 1 hundreds thousands

7 000 000 – 7 Millions

[mediator_tech]

 

This can also be represent the place-value of the number as:

7 000 000 + 100 000 + 20 000 + 3 000 + 800 + 40 + 0

The place value of 0 is 0 unit, its value = 0

The place value of 4 is 4 tens, its value = 40

The place value of 8 is 8 hundreds, its value = 800

The place value of 3 is thousands, its value = 3 000

The place value of 2 is ten thousands, its value = 20 000

The place value of 1 is hundred thousands, its value = 100 000

The place value of 7 is millions, its value = 7 000 000

 

ACTIVITY 2 

Guide the pupils find the value and place columns for 574 619 301 743.

[mediator_tech]

 

                VALUE               |             PLACE VALUE 

5 = ____________________ | ____________________

7 = ____________________ | ____________________

4 = ____________________ | ____________________

6 = ____________________ | ____________________

1 = ____________________ | ____________________

9 = ____________________ | ____________________

3 = ____________________ | ____________________

0 = ____________________ | ____________________

1 = ____________________ | ____________________

7 = ____________________ | ____________________

4 = ____________________ | ____________________

3 = ____________________ | ____________________

 

CLASS WORK

1. 7 250 638 510

2. 50 174 596 801

3. 41 400 305 986

4. 310 956 388 670

5. 190 718 102
