My daughter brought this worksheet home today too.

You have 913,256 as the problem. We know that if we work from 6 over the #'s are in these places: 6 in the ones, 5 in the tens, 2 in the hundreds, 3 in the thousands, 1 in the ten thousands and the 9 in the hundred thousands spot.

They teach the kids to group these. So the one spot, ten spot and hundred spot are called ONES PERIOD. The thousands, ten thousands and hundred thousands are grouped in THOUSANDS PERIOD.

This was very helpful. Until I read your answer I was stumped. Thanks.

Just in case I didn't write that clear; the answer is Thousands Period. wink

My son has this tonight. I took calculus and a couple of statistics classes in college, but I'm stumped!!! Help!!
answered Aug 15, 2013 by anonymous
the answer is the thousands group . its the way they word the problem that complicates it . 913,256 256 being the ones group 913 being the thousands group . so the name of the period with 913 , is the thousands group .

Each digit in a number has a place value that tells you how much that digit is worth. 
Each place value is ten times as large as the next place value to the right.

Numbers are arranged into three place values called periods
The places in the period repeat (hundreds, tens, ones.)
Commas are used to separate periods.

Thank you so much. I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who had trouble with this one.
answered Aug 21 by anonymous
The answer is the "thousands period".  The thousands, ten-thousands, and hundred-thousands place value are group together into the "Thousands period".  I was a math teacher and I never heard it referred to as a period!

My daughter had the same exact math problem today.
answered Aug 21 by Jim

 I have the same problem too helpsadI don't get it

Seriously, this is insane. I hate Common Core Math and I really hope they go back to normal math.
