This term Room 12 have been learning all about the place value of whole numbers. Why is learning place value important? Learning place value is important so that children understand that each digit in a whole number has a different value. It helps to support their understanding that all numbers are made up of the digits 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9. Depending on where these digit are in a number decides the digits value within that number. Here is a video that can help support your child's understand of the place value of numbers.
