A useful, very effective template for making place value sliders. The laminated Slider allows the learner to see the digits moving left or right when they multiply or divide by powers of 10 and discourages the use of ‘adding zeros’ or ‘moving the decimal point’ which are not now used in schools. Covers whole numbers up to 7 digits and decimals to 2 decimal places.
