# Place Value (Year 3)

In KS2 Maths, kids will explore the value of numbers. Starting in Year Three, they'll understand that digits 0-9 have different values based on their position. They'll recognise ones, tens, and hundreds, and learn to write and convert numbers into words.

Place value involves hundreds, tens, ones, tenths, and hundredths. You've probably covered this in your maths lessons. For example, a 2 can mean 2, 20, or 200 depending on its place in a number. Take this quiz to test what you've learned about place value!
