    This was a good reminder of using proper vocabulary/terminology.

    For example there are only 10 digits and they make up a number (there are 26 letters and they make up words).

    Also in the example 228. I must remember to explain or reword when I ask ‘How many tens are in 228?’ When using PV blocks it is easier because I ask ” Using the least number of blocks, how many tens are in 228? ” or something similar.

    Definitely relates to money… If you only had dimes and pennies, show 228 with the least number of coins.
