# Place Value (Year 6)

By the time children have reached Year Six in KS2, they should be quite comfortable when dealing with place values in Maths. By now they should be well aware of how the values of digits change depending on their position in a number, and know their equivalent values. They should also know the positions after a decimal point - tenths, hundredths and thousandths. They will now be introduced to place holders and should know how the position of a decimal point, and the position of digits, move when multiplied or divided by 10, 100 or 1,000.

We know the value of a digit changes with its position in a number relative to the decimal point. Before the decimal we have units, tens and hundreds, and after we have tenths, hundredths and thousandths. We also use place holders. Zeros at the end of a number are place holders. They come after another number, a 1 for example, to show whether it is worth 10, 100 or 1,000.

Take this quiz to discover what you know about place value. This quiz is intended for children aged 10-11.
