We have been working on understanding rounding in math. I have taught the students a poem to help them remember the steps of rounding.
Find your number,
Look next door.
4 or less just ignore (leave the underlined number as is)
5 or more add 1 more (add 1 to the underlined number)
Here are some examples to practice:
432,983 round to the nearest 1,000 _______________________
834,531 round to the nearest 10 __________________________
234,912 round to the nearest 100 ________________________
