Place Value
In this book, you will work on recognizing that in a multi digit whole number 
(less than or equal to 1,000,000), 
a digit in one place represents 10 times 
as much as it represents in the place to its right. 
For example, you will be able to recognize that 7 in 700 is 10 times 
bigger than the 7 in 70 because 700 ÷ 70 = 10 
and 70 x 10 = 700.
The place of a digit in a number determines it’s value.

   Understanding relationships between digits and their place value is very important when working with numerals. The value of a digit changes as it moves up on the place value chart. Base ten blocks and a place value charts help us see the relationship between where digits are placed on the chart and their value in the spot. Watch the LearnZillion video to help you review and think about the relationship between digits and their place value.
