Rounding up and down is an essential place value skill but one that is very difficult for students to understand. These Rounding Rules booklets are designed to support your Stage 3 students when trying to round any number to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10 000, 100 000 or even 1 000 000. The language structure is the same in each booklet so that a fixed routine is developed.
Each booklet is made from 8 small photocopied strips, stapled to create an individual booklet. Each booklet provides the language structure to help your students work through each rounding up or down problem.
We are also working on some groups of Rounding to 100s, 1000s, 10 000s and 1 000 000s number lines so that your students can see another format to assist their visualisation of what happens each time. These should be available soon.
