Alternatively, there are screenshots on the page below.
Following on from the work we had started in term two, this fortnight we will focus on place value, this means the value of a number in its place.
We are focusing on tens and units.
Units-also called ones- are the digits 0-9.
Tens are the first digit in a two digit number.
Each of the numbers from 10-19 have one ten in them. I have circled the ten to show you.
Can you circle the ten in these numbers?
e)12 f) 16
Units or ones are the second digit in a two digit number.
Did you see what happened when we got to ten?
We circled the second number- “0” .
There are “0” units in the number ten.
The units are the second number in our two digit number.
Can you circle the units in these numbers?
e)12 f) 16
It is really helpful to “make” tens and units using blocks or anything else you might have in the house.
In school we would do lots and lots of work with blocks of ten in towers with single blocks as units. At home you could use lollipop sticks, raw spaghetti, or lego to represent the ten. You can use macaroni, lollipop sticks, or beak up the spaghetti into ten pieces to represent the units. If you can’t physically make tens and units, there is a link at the end to some matching cards to help you recognise the place value of tens and units.
In the sheet below there are pictures to represent a number showing more than ten.
When we have counted out ten of the balls, they are circled. How many are there? That’s right-ten! One ten!
Whatever is left, is the units.
Write the number of tens in the box marked t and the units in the box marked u.
Using the work you have done above, can you fill in the numbers on this sheet?
Here are some further worksheets for the rest of the week.
