The Vogt Collection of Place Value Names

All place values are a repitition of the three names: one, ten, and hundred. The first three places (from the decimal - moving left)being only called by those names: the ones, the tens, and the hundreds. However, each set of three place values after that also have a group name (sort of like a last name) with the first group being the thousands (so the three place values, again moving left, are the {one} thousands, the ten thousands, and the hundred thousands. So, place values are really easy to remember if you just learn the group names. Then you just follow the repitition of ones - tens - hundreds (so you would have ONE "group name", TEN "group name", and HUNDRED "group name" and then start the repition over with the next group name).
