Place Value Worksheets and Resources

On this page you will find link to our range of place value resources, including online practice, charts and worksheets.

Definition of Place Value

So what exactly is place value?

Place value refers to the value of the digits in any given number. In the number 482 for example, the value of the digit '8' is 80 and the value of the digit '4' is 400.

At a more advanced level, in the number 36.57, the value of the digit '5' is 0.5 and the value of the digit '7' is 0.07.

In our number system, each time you move a place to the right, the value of the digit gets ten times bigger. Each time you move a place to the left, the value of the digit gets ten times smaller.

Place Value Learning

Children start their learning journey in Math when they start to count. When they are confindent counting small groups of objects and getting beyond 10, they then begin to develop their understanding of place value up to 100 and beyond.

When they have understood how place value with whole numbers works, they can start learning about place value with decimals.

Our selection of free math place value worksheets has been split into different areas below so that you can more easily find the right sheet for your child.
