To put this in context this was the text that I sent home:
Your maths mission for this week is to practise and improve your skills at rounding numbers to the nearest 1, 10, 100, or 1000.
Remember, when using whole numbers, look at the units. If the unit value equals 0 or 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 (less than 5) then round down:
72 rounded equals 70 because the 2 units is less than 5
654 rounded equals 650 because the 4 units is less than 5
9753 rounded equals 9750 because the 3 units is less than 5
If the unit value equals 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 or 9 (more than 4) then round up:
56 rounded equals 60 because the 6 units is more than 4
345 rounded equals 350 because the 5 units is more than 4
4567 rounded equals 4570 because the 7 units is more than 4
If you want a challenge then use four digit whole numbers with two decimal places.
4567.89 rounded equals 4567.9 then 4568.0
9876.54 rounded equals 9876.50 then 9877.0
