# Max Maths, Year 3, Learn together, Place value (2)

## Maths Resource Description

In a Year 3 mathematics lesson from Max Maths, students are introduced to the concept of place value, which is a fundamental aspect of understanding numbers. The activity involves examining a place-value chart to determine the value of individual digits within a number. This exercise helps to reinforce the idea that the position of a digit in a number affects its value. For instance, in a three-digit number, the digits can represent units (ones), tens, or hundreds, with each position increasing in value by a factor of ten as you move from right to left.

Through examples provided in the lesson, students can see how the digit '9' occupies the hundreds place in the number 984, thereby representing 900. Similarly, they are shown how to break down other numbers into their constituent place values: the digit '5' in the ones place, '8' in the tens place, and '9' in the hundreds place, which altogether make up the number 984. This activity not only assists students in identifying the value of each digit but also in understanding how to construct and deconstruct numbers based on their place values. The lesson directs students to workbook pages for further practice and reinforcement of the concepts learned.
