What is "Rounding" ?
Rounding means _________________________in a number, while trying to keep its value __________.
Ex: 73 rounded to the nearest ten is 70, because 73 is closer to 70 than to 80.
How to Round Numbers
• Decide which is the last digit to keep
• Leave it the same if the next digit is less than 5 (this is called rounding ____________)
• But increase it by 1 if the next digit is 5 or more (this is called rounding ________)
Remember- “5 or above, _________________________________________.
4 or below, __________________________________________.”
Poduch’s Recommendation:
Underline the place that you are rounding to.
Use a line to “cut” the number after the place you are rounding to.
If the first “cut” digit is a 5 or higher, round up by one.
Rewrite the rounded number, stopping at the correct place.
rounded hundredths is: __________________
rounded tenths is: __________________
rounded whole (ones place) is: __________________
rounded tens is: __________________
