Throughout this WebQuest you have explored other number systems and other ways of counting and you have created a base 4 number system. During the research, creation, and presentation process you have discovered that each place is simply comprised of an overflow group from the prior place. You also saw that the value of each place grows exponentially by multiplying the base times itself. Think about how you can apply the place value pattern to places representing smaller values to the right of the one's place. The place value pattern continues on to infinity in both directions; places not only become greater by moving to the left, but also become less as you move to the right. With only symbols we can represent infinitely large quantities and infinitely small quantities. It's all part of the beautiful order of mathematics!
