Teaching of the place value system happens in the context of teaching numbers and is very closely related to counting, grouping objects to aid counting, usage of number decomposition, learning the patterns in number names, learning the written representations of numbers, learning the patterns in the relationships between consecutive places, and developing a proper number sense. Children develop facility with numbers and a sound understanding of the number system only if sufficient care is taken in building all the above mentioned areas.
