In this lesson, we will learn:

- How to read number lines for decimals to the tenths or hundredths
- How to draw a point to represent a decimal on a decimal number line

- A
**number line**is a picture of a straight line with vertical markings of equal spacing **Number lines**increase from left to right (small $\, \longrightarrow \,$ big)

**Decimals**are numbers with**place values**__even smaller__than the ones place.**Number lines**can be divided even further between each number- Splitting each division into
creates the next*10 equal parts***decimal place value** - Dividing the space between 0 to 1 into 10 equal parts, each part is a
__tenth__ - Dividing the space between 0 to 0.1 into 10 equal parts, each part is a
__hundredth__

- From 0 to 1, it is first split into 10 equal parts (tenths = 0.1)
- Each of these tenths 0.1 will be split into 10 more equal parts (10 tenths each into 10 parts = 10 × 10 = 100 parts)
- Ultimately, the space between 0 and 1 will be split into 100 equal parts
- That's why each 0.01 is called a hundredth (one of the 100 parts)
