Hi Mom!
Max and I are planning to
go and play cricket this afternoon.
Do you want some help?
Yes dear.
I have collected some buttons to sell
at the spring fare.
Sure Miss Squirrel!
We would be glad to help.
Here mom let me help you.
Waow! Miss Squirrel looks like you
have already grouped the buttons.
Yes dear.
I have grouped the buttons in various
place values such as ones, tens and hundreds.
Place values?
Yes dear.
Place values help us to understand
the values of the numbers such as ones,
tens, hundreds, thousands etc.
Amber tell me what is the number written
on the jars on the table here?
The number is 7, 8, 4.
Can you tell me the place value of this number?
Umm aha.... i don't know mom.
Number's such as 784 have 3 digits
each digit has a different place value
the 1st digit on the left is called the
hundred's place
it tells you how many sets of 100 are in the number
the number 784 has 7 hundred's
the middle digit is the ten's place
it tells you that there are 8 ten's.
The last or right digit
is the one's place which is 4 in this example.
Therefore, there are 7 sets of 100
plus 8 set's of ten
plus 4 one's in the number 784
mom so what's therein the jute sacks?
can you see the small Jar's?
Each Jar is filled with 10 button's
The juts sack's contain 10 such jar's each
so the place value of a sack is 10 times
that of a jar.
Which is 100
so come on now find the total number of
buttons in all.
So let's see
there are 5 buttons in the bowl
there are 1, 2, 3, 8, 9. There are 9 jar's
And there are 2 sack's having 10 jar's each.
This is going to be a tough one mom.
Let me help you
so there are 5 lose buttons
9 Jar's
which make 90 buttons.
and 2 sacks
so if 1 sack has 100 buttons
2 sack's would have?
200
correct Max
so the total is 295.
you are right my dear
Now that you have learnt about place
values are you ready to identify the
number according to its place value?
Yeah.. Yes we are ready.
Great! Amber which number is in the ten's place?
aaa the number 9
correct.
Max which number is in the one's place?
The number 5
very good
and which number in in the hundred's place?
The number 2.
Mom i have a question?
sure Amber go ahead
can we use place values while counting
money as well?
yes! sure Amber.
But we will use denominations instead of
place values to group and count money.
Denominations?
Yes dear denominations are the values of
different coins or notes.
When we want to count coins or notes
we grouped them according to their
denominations
mom Max and I have collected some
money for a charity, and we need your
help in counting the money.
Sure dear, I would be delighted to help
you and Max
woow! we have collected a lot of money
right Amber?
Yes Max.
Oh great ! I can show you how to group
money using denominations and count as well.
Now lets start grouping and counting the
money using denomination
This is a 100 rupee note
so Max you collect all the 100 rupee notes
so Max how many notes do we have
of the 100 denominations?
There are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
5 hundred rupee notes of 5 notes with the
denomination of 100.
Brilliant Max! Now Amber count the notes
of denominations 10?
They are the 10 rupee notes, right mom?
Correct Amber
There are ummm let's see
20 ten rupee notes
you are right Amber
which means
which Means that there are 20 notes
of the denomination 10
perfect Max
now let's count how many notes do we
have of the denomination 1?
I counted 25 notes of the denomination 1
and I counted 20 notes of the
denomination 1
so the total is 25 + 20 = 45 notes
Thus there are 45 notes of the
denomination 1
Yipee! so the total money we collected is
500 + 200 + 45 which is = 745
you both have done a very good collection.
We need to go and help my mom
pack buttons for the spring fare
so let's quickly go over
what we learn today.

or a coin
It is shown on the face of the coin or a note.
