About Place Value:

The value of each digit in a number is dependent on its place, or position in the number. When the same digit occupies a different position, its value changes. For example the 9 in 93 stands for 9 tens or 90, whereas the 9 in 9672 stands for 9 thousands or 9000.


Test Objectives
  • Demonstrate the ability to construct a place value chart
  • Demonstrate the ability to find the place value of a given digit in a number using a place value chart
  • Demonstrate the ability to find the place value of a given digit in a number without a place value chart
