In this section we will learn about place value. We will learn that each digit in a number gains its value from its position or place in the number. We learn how to use a place value chart to visually see the place value for each digit in a given number. Additionally, we will learn to create a place value chart from scratch and perform several examples where no place value chart is involved. We do this by explaining that the number system is a base 10 system. As we move to the left, we multiply the previous place value by ten to arrive at our new place value.
