Year 5 Maths worksheet: Place value with decimals

place-value-with-decimals-1By Year 5 children should have a good understanding of place value and know that the value of a digit is dependent on its place in the number. eg the 6 in 3.6 is six tenths, whilst the 6 in 16.4 is 6 units. This worksheet should demonstrate whether this concept has been understood. It asks that the value of the digit 6 is written down for each number shown, working with numbers up to to decimal places. This could be done as numbers or in words. Talk about the decimal fraction 0.6, that it can be read as six tenths or 6/10 and that 0.06 is six hundredths or 6/100.
