This week in maths we are going to continue looking at decimals.


Today's LO: to understand the place value of decimals


Look at the place value chart below. It shows our whole numbers, from millions to ones. It also shows our decimal numbers, including tenths and hundredths. Beneath, it shows how many tenths and hundredths are in each number. It also demonstrates how to partition decimals.

Your task today is to think about the value of digits in decimal numbers.
