Even though numbers beyond tens of thousands are not mentioned in the Australian Curriculum, learning about large numbers at this level is useful to extend students' understanding of place value and the naming conventions for large numbers. Beyond hundreds, a new pattern of sets of three related places begins, starting with thousands in hundred thousands, ten thousands and (one) thousands. This is repeated in the millions place and beyond.
