## Teaching Your Students How to Round With Decimals?

Your students probably have a good understanding of how to round whole numbers by the time they enter year 5. To increase the difficulty a bit, they now may be expected to round to place values to the right of the decimal point. Let’s take a look at some quick tips and an example to share with your students!

Find the Decimal Place – When rounding a number, locate the decimal point and identify the place you want to round to. Consider underlining this place to help you.

Look at the Number to the Right – Check the number to the right of the place to which you are rounding. If you are rounding 3.46 to the nearest tenths place, look at the 5 to determine what you should do with the number in the tenths place (4).

Decide How to Round – If the digit to the right is 5 or greater, round up; if it’s 4 or less, round down.

Round the Number – Now, round your original number. In 3.46, since 6 is more than 5, you round up the tenths place digit to 3.5.

## Round Decimals to the Nearest Tenth, Hundredth and Whole Number!

This self-checking interactive activity is a must-have for your maths classroom! Not only will it engage your students with different types of decimal rounding questions, but it also will give your students automatic feedback on whether they got a question correct or not.

Once opening the slide deck in presentation mode, students will be invited to answer a series of 24 questions. Different types of questions students will encounter include:

• Standard rounding questions
• Using a number line to round a decimal
• Rounding money
• Word problems
