Place Value Problems

Math Circles:
In this session, we’ll learn how to solve problems related to place value. This is one of the fundamental concepts in arithmetic, something every elementary and middle school mathematics teacher should understand profoundly. Several example puzzles are followed by a rich selection of over 30 additional problems to explore. This collection of place value problems is suitable for student circles, teacher circles, or the classroom.
