##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to calculate the upper and lower bounds for a number rounded to the nearest power of ten and decimal place using a number line.
• Most students should be able to calculate the upper and lower bounds for a number rounded to the nearest power of ten and decimal place using mental methods.
• Some students should be able to calculate the upper and lower bounds for a number rounded to the nearest power of ten, decimal place and significant figure.
