💛Understanding Place Value💚

February 5, 2020

💛💚Place value is understanding that 113 is the same as:

1 ten, 1 hundred, and 3 ones
Or
11 tens and 3 ones
Or
13 ones and 10 tens

🤔What other ways can you make this number? 

This is the kind of thinking that surrounds place value learning. If students struggle in math, oftentimes place value understanding is at the root of the problem. Children, especially 3rd graders and higher, should be able to manipulate numbers in different ways. Use place value charts and base ten blocks like the ones pictured for practice.
