What is a place value chart?

A place value chart is a visual representation of the base-ten number system. It helps students understand the relationship between digits and their position in a number.

The free place value chart is divided into columns. Each column represents a different place value – ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, and so on.

This makes it easier for students to see how numbers grow or shrink as they move from left to right on the chart.

• Building Numbers: Give students a number and have them build it using manipulatives or by writing numbers on the chart. This will help reinforce the relationship between digits and their position in a number.
• Expanded Form: Have students write numbers both in word form and expanded form using the chart. This will help them break down a number into its individual place values and understand how they are combined to create the number.
