Rounding to the Nearest Power of Ten

Students learn how to round any number to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. As learning progresses students begin to use mental methods for rounding and estimating solutions.  An interactive Excel file is included with the lesson for additional practise.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to round an integer to the nearest 10 and 100 using a number line.
  • Most students should be able to round any number to a given power of ten.
  • Some students should be able to determine the upper and lower bound of a number that has been rounded to a given power of ten.

Matching inequalities, Number sets and Number Lines At the start of the lesson students recap […]

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]
