              Rounding to a Decimal Place

              Students learn how to round a number to a given decimal place using place value.  As learning progresses they move on to using mental methods.  An interactive Microsoft Excel file provides additional practice throughout the lesson.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to round a number to a single decimal place using a number line.
