Rounding Decimal Numbers

Students learn about accuracy when rounding decimal numbers.  Learning progresses from rounding to one decimal place using a number line to any decimal place using written methods.  More able students consider the limits of accuracy when a number has been rounded.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to round a number to the first decimal place.
  • Most students should be able to round a number to any given decimal place.
  • Some students should be able to determine the upper and lower bound when a number has been rounded to a decimal place.
