 # Identifying Place and Determining Value Worksheets

Having a good understanding of place and place value in numbers allows students to complete more complex math skills that rely on place value such as sorting and ordering numbers, addition and subtraction, and multiplication and division.

Two types of Place Value Math Worksheets were recently updated: Identifying place only and Determining place and digit values. The revised worksheets now include name and date fields, a better balance of all places covered on each worksheet and multiple places to value in the case of the decimal versions. If, for example, you use a worksheet that covers the places from ones to millions, and there are 20 questions on the page, each place will show up on the page at least twice and most places will show up three times. On the decimal versions, students are asked to value two places: one before the decimal and one after the decimal.

As there are different number formats around the world, there are three number formats used: U.S., S.I. (commonly used in Canada), and a European format version with commas for decimals. If you visit the place value worksheets page, each section is clearly marked, so it should be easy to get the number format that you want.

## Sample Questions

In the first set of sample questions, students are asked the place value and the value of each underlined digit. In question 17, the underlined digit is in the thousands place, so the place value is 1000. Since the digit 5 is in the thousands place, the value of that digit is 5 x 1000 = 5000.

Question 18 is interesting as the place value is 100 as it is the hundreds place, but since there is a 0 in that place, the value of the digit is zero. Versions of this worksheet start at hundreds (three-digit numbers) and go up to hundred millions (nine-digit numbers).
