Our number system involves the digits 0 to 9 representing different values (units, 10s, 100s, etc.) based on their placement in a number. Students develop their understanding of the base-10 system as they explore number size and relations.

Base-10 knowledge is fundamental for early math skills like decomposing, which involves breaking numbers into parts, and can impact a student's understanding of more complex math, like multi-digit Operations.
