Tens, Hundred, and Thousands Place Worksheets
Understanding what the significance of each integer in a number is a core and fundamental math skill that students will need to master at this level and carry on to all future grades with them. This helps them understand a great deal about basic numeracy and it makes calculating various math operations much easier. When we move on to the concepts of decimal values understanding this topic will be the first step in that direction. This collection of worksheets will have students identifying and actively using place values.

- Switching Place Values Step-by-Step Lesson- We skip from one place value to the next in stride.
- Guided Lesson - We go between hundreds and ones place, then we work on expanded form. We finish off with visuals to place values.
- Guided Lesson Explanation - Just figured out that I was a bit brief, to say the least, on the second one.
- Practice Worksheet - 2 parts on this one. Write number names and then jump between two place values.
- Matching Worksheet - Match the number names to the numbers themselves.
- Answer Keys - These are for all the unlocked materials above.
We start by tackling the number of thousands, hundreds, tens, and ones in various numbers.
- Homework 1 - How many ones you can make from 2 thousand? We move from ones to tens to hundreds to thousands. 3 places to the right.
- Homework 2 - A good example of a problem on this sheet would be: ____ thousands = 80 hundreds.
- Homework 3 - Solve these problems out right. You will need to add a concept of balance.
Very similar to the homework, but this time we space out more.
- Practice 1 - Complete all the boxes please. You will explore the use of word form and expanded form to balance each of the equations.
- Practice 2 - Fill the empty cells with an equal value to the other side.
- Practice 3 - Another worksheet for you. Take your time with these problems.
Math Skill Quizzes
I used the most people place value shifts that you will see assessed at all the various levels.
- Quiz 1 - These quiz sheets will make for quick grading and feedback for students.
- Quiz 2 - Find the value of interest and then complement it on the other side of the equals symbol.
- Quiz 3 - This is a bit more challenging. Great to see how far they have come along with this section.
What Is Meant by the Tens, Hundred, and Thousands Place?
A place value is the worth of an integer within a number. For instance, in the number 4,831, the 4 represents 4,000, the 8 signifies 800, the 3 represents 30, and the 1 stands for 1. If you notice as you move from right to left each value is ten times greater than the previous one. This is why we call the numeracy system that we use the base ten system. The goal here is to understand what value each of the integers found within a number represents.
To understand what tens, hundreds, and thousands of places mean, you must learn about the concept of place values. You can visualize place values as the fingers in your hand, the fingers are called digits, and each finger can be the number 0 – 9. In a number, the value of the digit can be found out by its position. For instance, the number 532 has five 100s, three 10s and two 1s added together to form one number. Let's visualize them further in the table below.
If you add these three numbers together (500 + 30 +2), you will again get the answer 532. So, if the above number tells us about the hundreds, tens, and units place of an expression, where will the thousands place come? It will be placed on the leftmost side in a 4-digit number.
Let's take another example of the expression 4821 in the table below.
Things to Remember
- Thousands place number has three zeros.
- Hundreds place number has two zeros.
- Tens place number has a single zero.
- One's place digit does not have a zero. So in this case the value is 4,000 + 800 + 20 +1.
