Place value is a critical component of the common core and sequences from grade to grade. From understanding place value and reading of numbers to understanding place value and the concepts of powers of ten. These slides were actually used as a formative assessment to identify where students were at, on the place value spectrum. Now place value progresses from grade to grade. As a formative assessment, I knew where the students were at, at middle school math students. It was always my philosophy to identify the students' level of understanding at start from there. Now students are expected to exit a grade with a certain level of understanding. As I continue to work on these concepts I will attempt to develop these at a grade level and formative assessment PDF's.
