### Content:

**Place Value Explanation:**- Place value refers to the value of a digit based on its position in a number.
- Example: In the number 435, the place value of 5 is â€˜unitsâ€™, 3 is â€˜tensâ€™, and 4 is â€˜hundredsâ€™.

**Writing Numbers in Expanded Form:**- Breaking down a number based on its place values.
- Example: 435 = 400 + 30 + 5.

**Identifying Place Values:**- Identifying the place value of each digit in a number.
- Example: In 547, 7 is in the â€˜unitsâ€™ place, 4 is in the â€˜tensâ€™ place, and 5 is in the â€˜hundredsâ€™ place.

**Comparing Numbers Using Place Value:**- Using place value to compare and order numbers.
- Example: 435 is greater than 345 because the hundreds digit 4 is greater than 3.
