In G3, you need to know about WRITTEN, STANDARD (numeric) and EXPANDED FORM. This is to help you learn all about place value.
Just to remind you: –
- Standard – 52, 467
- Written – fifty-two thousand, four hundred sixty-seven
In this lesson we are going to look at EXPANDED FORM.
Here is how this number would look like written in expanded form
50,000 + 2,000 + 400 + 60 + 7
First of all ask yourself this question…what is ZERO? What does it mean? Why do we need it?
Let’s explore this a little further with some hands-on work. You will need this grid to help you.
Once we have made the numbers in your grid, see if you can make up two or three more of your own using the empty grid.
