Today can you explore the value of numbers?
We have already looked at the value of numbers and what each digit is worth. We know that a two digit number has tens and ones. We have practised drawing our tens and ones to help us compare numbers and recognise what a number is worth.
2 3 3 6
ll … lll ……
23 is made up of 2 tens and 3 ones. 36 is made up of 3 tens and 6 ones. I know that 36 is greater than 23 because 3 tens is worth more than 2 tens.
Write some one and two digit numbers. Can you draw the tens and ones to show what the numbers are worth?
Challenge: Can you have a go at a 3 digit number?
The large square= 100
The lines= 10
The dots= 1
