Expand It Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed to help students practice writing numbers in expanded form. On the left side of the page, there is a column of two- and three-digit numbers. To the right, there is a chart with three columns labeled for hundreds, tens, and ones. Students are instructed to break down each number from the left column into its component parts and write the expanded form in the corresponding place value columns.

The worksheet aims to solidify students’ understanding of place value by having them deconstruct numbers into their basic components. It teaches the concept that each digit in a number has a different value depending on its position. This practice is crucial for developing a deeper understanding of the number system and for learning to perform various mathematical operations accurately. By completing the worksheet, students enhance their ability to work with and understand numbers in both expanded and standard form.
