Year 5 Place Value: Papa Titioning’s Log Classification System
A Story of Negative Numbers - 'The Search for M' This lesson helps children explore place value from thousandths through to millions in a story context. The use of the story helps them understand how our Base 10 system works and the concept of Powers of 10. Children in Upper Key Stage 2 are expected to work with numbers from thousandths through to millions. The only concrete resource that spans these place values are place value counters. The use of Papa Titioning’s Log Classification System enables children to explore conceptual understanding in a story context that includes pictorial recognition of the cardinality of large numbers.
