Place Value

Place value is understanding the value of each digit in a number. It is important to know which is a hundred, ten or unit to help round or order or to find more or less than a given number.


We have identified the thousands, hundreds, tens and unit of a number and some of us even went onto decimals!


Below is an example of our work. We have written HTU over our numbers to help us partition.

This week we also looked at negative numbers, which are smaller than a positive number. It is important to know negative numbers as they can be found and used on temperature gauges.


Here is an example from our work where we used a number to help us and and subtract negative numbers from a positive number.

To help with our understanding of negative numbers we played this game and then answered questions when we landed on a question card square.


Think of your own question and have a play!
