Value of digits microlesson
Do you struggle with balancing your kids’ screen time with their education? Say hello to 1Question, the app that solves this problem with a fun twist! Our app lets your child earn screen time minutes in their favourite apps by watching educational videos and correctly answering quiz questions. And the best part? You get to decide which apps to lock behind learning using 1Question.
Learning time
Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.
This lesson is about the value of each digit in a number up to 10 million. Firstly, we need to learn the difference between a digit and a number. This whole thing is a number: 4,527,852. These are the individual digits 4, 5, 2, etc. Their place in the number tells you their worth so the place value all depends on what column they're in. So, starting from the righthand side, we have units, tens hundreds, thousands, ten thousands, hundred thousands, and millions. Tn this example, the 7 is in the millions column so its value is 4 million. The 7 is in the thousands column so its value is 7,000.

Kids earn more screen time by answering fun educational questions.
