In this activity, you will be asked to count either forwards or backwards in steps of **powers of 10.**

When counting in steps of powers of 10, only one digit in the number will be altered.

**For example, **when adding 1,000 only the digit in the 1,000 place of the number will change.

All the other digits will remain the same.

13,456 + 1,000 = 14,456

**Let's recap:**

You count forward in **100s **like this...

530 630 730 830 930

You count forward in **1000s** like this...

6,892 7,892 8,892 9,892 10,892 11,892

You count forward in **10,000s** like this...

102,500 112,500 122,500 132,500 142,500

And finally, you count foward in **100,000s **like this...

607,800 707,800 807,800 907,800 1,907,800

The final number in this sequence has become 1 million, 9 hundred and 7 thousand, and 8 hundred.

Now it's over to you!
