# Place Value

## Place Value Resources

Place value underpins every other area in mathematics. As such, it’s important to build a solid understanding of number and how our number system works. Partitioning numbers means breaking numbers into different parts. Flexibly partitioning numbers is a very important skill as it assists with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. For example if we need to solve 3×46, we can partition 46 into 40+6 and then solve 3×40 (=120) and then 3×6 (=18). We can work out very easily that 3×46=138.

The following resources aim to develop students’ understanding of place value. The resources on this page are designed to allow students to apply their understanding of place value as they work through concepts/skills including:

• Partitioning
• Flexible Partitioning
• Rounding Numbers

High quality printable resources to help improve student’s understanding and application of numeracy and place value skills.  Place Value Sort (New!) Sort the numbers into the correct group.

### Place Value Games   4 In a Row Move around the outer squares finding matching numbers in the centre. The first player to place 4 counters in a row wins! Place 8! (4-digits) Race to place down 8 counters to be the winner. Match the place value of the digits in your number to numbers in the centre squares. Place 8 (5-digits) Race to place down 8 counters to be the winner. Match the place value of the digits in your number to numbers in the centre squares.   Race to 8,000! Use knowledge of place value to make a number closest to 8,000 without going over. Penguin Race 3-digit Players use their knowledge of place value to race to the end.
