Big Ideas: Each digit of a number has a value depending on its place within the number. The hundreds place tells you how many hundreds are in a number, the tens place tells you how many tens are in a number, and the ones place tells you how many ones are in a number. A one digit number is made up of ones, a ten is made up of one ten or ten ones, a hundred is made up of one hundred ones or ten tens. Numbers can be represented in multiple ways to show the same number. Numbers can be shown in a variety of ways, including modeled with base ten blocks. In this lesson students are taking their knowledge of place value and applying it to visualizing a number by the base ten blocks. Vocabulary: base-ten, digit, value, place, numeral, number, word form, regroup Special Materials: base ten blocks
