In order to gain a basic understanding of numbers, kids need to learn a few different ways to write them. In this post, we will cover standard notation, expanded notation, and number word name examples. Once your students are familiar with these topics, let them practice by printing the standard and expanded notation worksheets PDF. (Page 1 and 2 contain math problems. The answer key is included on the third page.) I’ve decorated each page with original hand-drawn art. This worksheet is available only to Tim’s Printables members.

Standard Notation is simply the number itself. The standard notation for the number four is ‘4’. The standard notation for the number ninety-five is ’95’.
Number Word Name Notation: Three hundred twenty-five

Expanded Notation Example
When using expanded notation, you break up a number into its components. The expanded notation for 84 is ‘8 tens + 4 ones’:
Standard Notation: 4,521
Expanded Notation: 4 thousands + 5 hundreds + 2 tens + 1 one
Number Word Name Example
The word name of a number means the number written using words. The number word name for ‘942’ is ‘nine hundred forty-two’.
