Dr. Evil and Place Value

Dr. Evil, from Austin Powers, is holding the world at ransom. He keeps asking world leaders to pay him valuable amounts of money. Why are the world leaders laughing at him? How does this relate to place value?

Place Value Key Learning from yesterday:

When writing a number…

  • Begin at the right and then move left
  • Every third number should have a space between it and the next…                                                                                                                      84 123 456
  • Each group of three has a value… 84 has a million value, 123 has a thousand value and 346 has a hundred value
  • You can use expanded form to find the value of individual digits… 64 234 is really 60 000 + 4000+200+30+4
