This interactive place value chart helps children develop an understanding of the value of each digit in a number. When writing numbers, the value of each digit depends on its place. Zeros are placeholders for places without a value. This manipulative place value chart offers a visual representation of ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, ten thousands, hundred thousands, and millions.
To use the chart, simply click and drag a number into the chart. Depending on where you place it, zeros will automatically appear to show the value of the number. Drag numbers around or off the chart to change the number. The interactive place value chart shows the number, composition of the number, and written number below the chart.
Students can practice placing a dictated number on the chart and confirm whether they’ve done so correctly by reading the written number. Alternatively, students can experiment with numbers and see how they change as they move one number from place to place.
