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.
