Year 7 Maths Unit 2 - Place Value and Decimals

Updated: Oct 30, 2023

The title 'place value' with a colourful cloud full of numbers.

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.
