Place Value – What is it? What does it mean?

Hi all,

Next week we are going to start to look at place value during mathematics.

What is place value?

What do you already know? What do you understand?

What could you share with the rest of year 5?

Could you link the work covered on Roman Numerals?

Here are a few links to videos that might help. Perhaps you could add some better links that you find.


Good luck! Ask any questions as you go and as a team we will try to help!

  1. place value is when there is a number lets say 860 there are different ways to find that out the easiest is if 8 is in the hundredth place what’s the value 800 if 6 is in the tenths place what’s the value

    • What I mean is that you put a smaller number like one in front of a bigger number like ten.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ―πŸ―πŸ―πŸ˜œπŸΌπŸΌπŸ™‰β€οΈI❀️Math

  2. Basically place value means that if you get 58 you split like this 50 8 it’s like that. This Hundreds for example 275 split 200 70 5 and for thousands it’s 2,694 SPLIT 2,000 600 90 4.And for 10 thousands is 46,785 S P L I T 40,000 700 80 5 for 100 thousands is 756,486 700,000 50,000 6,000 400 80 6 and millions I don’t know yet Mrs Millard.πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸŽ‰

  3. I loved the place value song first one it is right you go to the left to get higher number ones, tens, hundreds,thousnds, ten thousands, hundred thousands, millions. And what do I do to decimal right I go from tenths to thousandths.

  4. Place value
    One sum: 1697
    1000 600 90 7
    another one 1000 x 6 = 6000 place value
    Place value when you want to know a long number and you don,t know it so this is how it is Th,H,T,U
    1 6 8 9 This is what you call place value moving one side to the left.

  5. I’m not quit shore what place value is but I now some things like the digits move up to like thousands and it moves up in 1 10 100 1000,000 and one million but that’s mostly what I now.

  6. place value is a kind off math and is very good when it comes to division
    and adds but n never take away place vale you is very I’m portent.
    some patterns in place value are 10 100 1000 10000 100000 1000000
    0 10000000 10000000000 10000000000000 1000000000 10000000000000

  7. This might help YOU guys πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ Year 5: Understand place value in 5-digit numbers. Place 5-digit numbers on a landmarked line. Compare 5-digit numbers. Add and subtract 1s, 10s, 100s, 1000s and 10,000s. Use compact column addition to add pairs of 4-digit numbers and pairs of 5-digit numbers. Year 6: Understand place value in 6-digit numbers. Place 6-digit numbers on a line. Compare 6-digit numbers. Add and subtract 1s, 10s, 100s, 1000s, 10,000s and 100,000s. Use compact column addition to add pairs of 5-digit numbers. Includes bar model examples.

    If you don’t know place value this is the right one

  8. place valliyou is very vitall in adds devison and taketakeway and more but never use it wrong so please youse it car fully or youll get it wrong.

  9. 25 the 2 is tens and the 5 is the units 2 digit. 195 the 1is the hundread the 9 is the ten and 5 is the units 3 digit. 4 digit 7,689 the seven is thousand the 6 is the hundread and the 8 is the ten and the 9 is the unit. My 1st sum is 2 5. my 2nd sum is 1 9 5 .And my 3rd sum is 7 6 8 9 just slide to the left.

  10. Plase value is when you have a number let’s say 9876 the 9 will go in the thousand collom the 8 will go in hundreds collom 7 will go in the ten collom 6 will go in units it splits up the number so it’s easier πŸ˜€

  11. U can do itin decimals,fractions and normal numbers.

    h t u
    2 6 0 place value is very simple i like doing it in frctions because it is esier decimals is alright but i like fractions . Normal numbers are way to easy From Emma and Yatunde

    th h t u

  12. Heres what I know about place value say if you had 5687 that would be 5000 600 80 and 7 in words that would be five thousand six hundred and eighty seven its not that complicated but I need a bit more information so reply to me and tell me more about it pleaseπŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  13. Wow that vidoe was amazing it retest my mind back to when I found out. that when you make the number go left twice it gets ten times bigger. And when you move it to the right twice it gets ten smallerπŸ˜€

  14. Place value is something like this:
    I have139,
    split it up:100 30 9
    another one:546
    split it up:500 40 6
    h t u
    6 7 8
    326 is 300 20 6
    at place value you have to always move to the left.

  15. place value is about moving the numbers to the left and the numbers go from ones tens hundreds thousand tenthousands hundred thousands millions and thats place value πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ƒ

  16. place value is where you have a number first I am going to have a two digit number first so the number is
    34: so you have3 to divide the number from there original numbers so the 3 would of represent 30 in the tens and the 4 would represent units. so that was just the easy way now you have to take a step further so you have to move to the left you will now use a three digit number 562 so you would do the same again than what I did the previous round and just do it in your thousands and if you want to be really smart try your ten thousands.if you get that you could try this decimals so if you wanted to say 2 wholes and 6 tenths you would put this 2.6 its not that hard but you need to consentrate. to link this work over roman numarals 457 would be CDLVII and try to put them into modern numbers,so how I would do it use the word medical so m is 1,000,D is 500,C is 100 and L is 50 so use those to find out that number comment year 5 if you could explain 457 in roman numarals and teachers. Year 5 I have 2 youtube videos you could use
    1: shake it of place value parody
    2: all about that bass place value parody.
    I forgot , this is how you use frations in place value lets go back from when we did decimals I am going to use the same numbers 2 wholes and 6 tenths you write 2 6_10. so that is how you use place value in many different ways

  17. place value is all about 100 10 an units there is so many different ways.Like fractions and decimals it never ends you can also do it in fractions and in roman numerals the word medical can help you in a way.the number gets bigger when you work it out and seperate it in three colums.

  18. Place value is about hundred tens and units and sometimes roman numerals here is an example 7563 the 7 is 7000 and the 5 is 500 and the 6 is 60 and the 3 is 3 tthats an example heres a link all about that base place value parody.
