Math Links: Place Value Activities
Number Top It - An online version of one of the best Everyday Math games ... this game requires a nuanced understanding of place value, as well as probability and implicit risk/reward analysis. Listen to the directions your first time; you can choose to skip the directions thereafter. (Note: Requires an Adobe Shockwave Plug-In on your computer.)
The Place Value Game - This is a game that is similar to Number Top It. The player must use probability concepts to decide where to place randomly generated numbers within a place value frame. If the student reads the final number out loud, this is also great practice reading numbers.
Manny's Rumba Base Ten Game - A great game to practice using base ten blocks to create numbers into the hundreds. The player also practices changing numbers, a precursor to finding differences mentally. Students love when Manny high-fives them each time they create the correct number.
