Place Value Challenge!

Today, we will be looking at the place value of numbers.

Place value is the value of each digit in a number. For example, the 5 in 350 represents 5 tens, or 50; however, the 5 in 15 represents 5 ones.

We would like you to represent the numbers below in the most creative ways you can. For example for 123 you could use a a pen to represent the hundreds, two buttons to represent the tens and three books for the ones.

Here are some example pictures to help give you ideas:

Starter numbers:

12 56

18 77

36 89

Challenge numbers: 112 561

148 747

336 819

If you really want to challenge yourself, can you make a 4 digit number using resources at home?

Here is a question for you to think about.

How do you know which number matches the correct representation?
