“…the understanding of number patterns and the logic to the naming systems and values of number”

Place Value Micro Content

  1. Order of digits makes a difference
  2. Additive property – The quantity represented by the whole numeral is the sum of the values represented by the individual digits
  3. Positional property – The quantities represented by the individual digits are determined by the position they hold within the whole numeral
  4. Base 10 property – The value of columns or positions increases by a power of 10 moving right to left and decreases by a power of 10 moving from left to right
  5. Multiplicative property – The value of a number is determined by the products of its face and place values
  6. There are patterns in the way we read and say numbers
  7. There are patterns in the way we write numbers
  8. Patterns in the number system can help us build other numbers
  9. Place value columns have names
  10. Zero can hold a place
  11. A 10 group is seen as a special entity which can be counted
  12. The term 10 group can be applies to ‘ten tens’ or ‘ten hundreds’ and so on
  13. We can skip count by ten, hundred etc. both forwards and backwards in place value parts
  14. Numbers can be partitioned in flexible ways using standard and non-standard partitions
  15. Number partitioning can be shown as indicative of digit value and place value. For example, 26=20 + 6 or (2×10) + (6×1)
