Solve a variety of rounding word problems and analyze errors with this math worksheet.

Rounding Worksheets (4th Grade)

As your students come to you in the 4th grade, they probably have a basic understanding of how rounding works. They may remember how numbers round up if the digit to the right is 5 or more and stay the same if it is 4 or less. After learning how to round to the nearest 10 or 100 (as they did in 3rd grade), students move towards rounding through the hundred thousands place.

This worksheet is designed to help students master the skills of rounding 6-digit numbers to the nearest tens, hundreds, thousands, ten thousands, or hundred thousands place when presented with a word problem. On the back side of the worksheet, students must analyze 5 statements, determine the error, and provide the correctly rounded number.

An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!
