Product Description
This is basic place value practice with three digit numbers, similar to another I have for 2-digit numbers. Given one representation of a number, students supply the others. Each number is represented five ways: as Base 10 Blocks, a number of Tens and Ones, expanded notation, written out in words, and as a point on a 0 to 1000 number line.

There are 7 problems to a page. Students often don’t need to use Base 10 Blocks, but if a student is struggling that might help.

Especially helpful in preparing students to regroup a Hundred into 10 Tens, which seems to be where many 2nd and 3rd graders have trouble when adding and subtracting, are 8 pages giving “alternate ways” of representing numbers in Base 10 Blocks: 274 = 2 Hundreds + 7 Tens + 4 Ones = 1 Hundred + 17 Tens + 4 Ones. Students are asked to draw these representations.
