Numerical Value and Expanded Form

Numerical Value and Expanded Form Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a learning tool for understanding the place value and expanded form of three-digit numbers. It lists a column of three-digit numbers and prompts students to identify the numerical value of the hundreds, tens, and ones places. Additionally, it requires the student to translate the number into its expanded form, showing how each digit contributes to the overall value of the number. For instance, the number 251 is broken down into “2 hundreds, 5 tens, and 1 one” and is expanded to show “200 + 50 + 1 = 251.”

The purpose of this worksheet is to teach students the concept of place value in a visually structured format. It guides them to analyze each digit of a number based on its position and calculate its value as part of the whole number. The worksheet also introduces the concept of the expanded form, which helps students understand how a number is built from its individual place values. By completing this exercise, students reinforce their understanding of the base-ten system, a fundamental aspect of arithmetic.
