Many will have difficulties in reading and writing such large numbers and will need a lot of help to appreciate the place value of each digit. The easiest way to read large numbers is to think of them as blocks of […]<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/maths-blog/~4/pzwEpZKIhT4" height="1" width="1"/>http://mathsblog.co.uk/2014/04/12/place-value-in-the-millions/feed/0http://mathsblog.co.uk/2014/04/12/place-value-in-the-millions/Subtraction in columns

Here we have a subtraction worksheet laid out in columns.

The ten times table is obviously the easiest to learn off by heart, but it can also be used to illustrate place value.

This might sound easy and if the numbers are low there should not be a problem. However, counting up and down in steps of 6 or 7 starting from larger numbers can be […]<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/maths-blog/~4/RP3k22imZ9I" height="1" width="1"/>http://mathsblog.co.uk/2014/01/31/counting-in-multiples-of-6-7-8-and-9/feed/0http://mathsblog.co.uk/2014/01/31/counting-in-multiples-of-6-7-8-and-9/Five times table in Year 2
