Deepening Teachers' Understanding of Place Value

Theresa Hopkins, Jo Cady 

April 2007, Volume 13, Issue 8, Page 434

Abstract:
This article reports on the use of a unique number system to facilitate teachers' understanding of the concepts of place value. Teachers' mastery of base-ten may hinder their recognition of the difficulties students have with place value, so the authors created a number system that used five symbols to represent values.
