Piping hot place value action, just like momma used to bake.
Update 17th May, 2009

The other day, I stuck my thumb in the worksheet pudding and this is what came out - number square fragments. Never heard of them? Imagine a hundred square that has been torn up, and then some of it's squares have been rubbed out for good measure. Place value heresy, I know. Your students' job is to work out, from the remaining numbers, what was there in the first place, a task that really focuses attention on the relationship between rows (adding ten, subtracting ten) and columns.  Want something more difficult, for those advanced pupils who believe they can "do" place value? Print out some negative number worksheets and reduce them to tears. Brilliant! I can't think of a better way to spend a Monday morning.

That's it really. I've fixed the problem with selecting normal hundred square sizes, and added a new Report King banner to the "Your worksheet" page (try it, you might like it!). I've got nothing else to chunter on about, so I better get off and do something useful, before the man comes about the drains again. Now, where did I leave that plunger?
