Use a decimal place value chart to show your child how numbers can be divided into smaller units.
For work with whole numbers, use the Place Value Chart I've created.
Most decimal places that we use everyday go no further than the hundredths place. Still, I've created a chart that goes up to (or is it down to?) the millionths spot.
Numbers are great, but some students may find that a real-life example explains the concept better. The second chart uses money to show the tenths and hundredths decimal place value.
These are just simple chart templates that you can use alongside your child's homework. For more worksheets covering decimals and place value, see the related pages at bottom.
