Set 05 Beginning Place Value
Children are beginning to learn the structures and rules of the number system. This involves understanding the link between grouping in ten and how numbers are written.

Multiplying by ten is the underlying structure of the number system and the key to how our numbers system works.
- Making Magic: This game uses the knowledge of the meaning of the digits in a teens number as 10+ something to make the teens.
- Jumping Ten: Understanding the base ten place value system allows you to add or subtract ten from any number. This is a requirement for adding or subtracting 2-digit numbers mentally.
