My son is in third grade. He is suppose to make a place value chart for homework. He can't explain to me what he needs to do. He said at the bottom has to be ones tens hundreds thousands and then he needs to cut squares out. Any ideas?

PsyDAG,
I would imagine the bottom labels need to be arranged with the smallest values to the right. However, I don't know how cutting squares would relate.
If possible, it probably would be best to contact your son's teacher to get the assignment explained. Have you tried this?
I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
