Writing Numbers using Words and Digits

Students learn about writing numbers using words and digits through the place value.  Less able students have access to a place value table.  More able students are encouraged to use language of fractions.  For example, 2.5 can be written as two point five or two and five tenths.At the start of the lesson students recap basic addition and subtraction.  In the development phase they learn how to use the place value table to read and write numbers in words and digits.  In the plenary students are challenged to match digits with their written counterparts.

  • All students should be able to write a number in words using the place value table.
  • Most students should be able to convert between numbers written in words and digits.
