Place Value Games

What is place value and why is it important?

Place value is the value of a digit based on its position in a number.  Place value provides the foundation for understanding how our number system works. At the elementary level, it allows children to break apart numbers, regroup to add and subtract, multiply multi-digit numbers, and even understand decimals. Therefore, it is a critical skill.
