# Year 7 Maths Unit 2 - Place Value and Decimals

Updated: Oct 30

This unit is all about place value and using decimals. Remember, you do not have to complete a task all in one go. If you need a break or are finding it tricky go do something else for 5 mins then come back. If you do have a break, or do it over a number of days make sure you restart working by playing the game at the start of the task. This will help your brain get ready and help you really improve your basic maths.

__Task 1 - Place value up to 1 billion__

Being able to confidently add and subtract numbers is very useful and relies on you having a good understanding of place value. So, we will start by revising what you already know. Do not rush to finish the work or move on the most important thing is that you really understand what you are doing before trying to work with decimals.
