students will be able to determine the value of a digit based on its placement in a number and its relationship to the other digits within the number. (Know one digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right/
When reading a multidigit number, students need to realize the different digits have different values based on their location on the place value chart. The 7 in 700 is not the same as the 7 in 570. A very difficult concept for students to grasp is the idea that each place value spot is ten times greater than the spot to its right due to our baseten numeral system.
Example: In the number 8,832 the 8 in 8,000 is 10 times greater than the 8 in 800.
