You are on the right track.

They have the same ending that the definite article would have in the same place.

For example, der Mann, die Frau, das Kind, plural: die Kinder

dieser Mann, diese Frau, dieses Kind, diese Kinder

That was only the nominative case, but this trick works in other cases too. den Mann -> diesen Mann (accusative case)
