Place value is the value of the number and where it belongs. There are many ways that place value is used in math. You start off with basic numbers and work to more complex numbers.
It can be a challenge for kids and parents to work on. But luckily there are many ways to work on it.
I have gathered up all my place value printables in one easy place for you to find them.
What is Place Value
The dictionary says that place value is the numerical value that a digit has by virtue of its position in a number.
That sounds really complicated but it is not. Each number digit has a value based on where it is. So if I have the number 24. Then the 2 is in the tens place and the 4 is in the ones place. It is super easy once you understand what each place value is.
There are several terms used in place value: standard, value, expanded, and picture
Take the same number above standard is 24.
Expanded would be 20+4.
The value would be 2 tens, 4 ones.
And the picture would be drawing a picture to represent the numbers. So you have 2 groups of 10s and the 4 small individual groups.
But all these ways still are the same number 24.
We start learning the basics of place value in first grade and work to more complicated numbers in fourth or fifth grade. The best part is that you build on what you learn in each grade.
