Place Value and Number Systems
This SMILE resource contains three packs of games, investigations, worksheets and practical activities supporting the teaching and learning of place value and the number system, from identifying simple numbers to working with different number bases.
Place value and the number system pack one contains thirteen work cards with a wide variety of activities requiring students to solve basic number puzzles, order numbers, work with Egyptian numbers, calculate using simple clock arithmetic, and follow a flowchart to produce numbers.
Place value and the number system pack two contains six work cards with activities about Roman numerals, Bengali numbers, Urdu multiples and a Chinese number puzzle.
Place value and the number system pack three contains seven work cards covering Hindi additions, Panjabi numbers, Cuneiform numbers, binary fractions, and working in different number bases. SMILE (Secondary Mathematics Individualised Learning Experiment) was initially developed as a series of practical activities for secondary school students by practising teachers in the 1970s. It became a complete individualised scheme based around a network of activity cards and assessments.
