Place-value understanding in number line estimation predicts future arithmetic performance.

Abstract

In multi-digit numbers, the value of each digit is determined by its position within the digit string. Children's understanding of this place-value structure constitutes a building block for later arithmetic skills. We investigated whether a number line estimation task can provide an assessment of place-value understanding in first grade. We hypothesized… (More)
