Rounding to the Nearest Ten
  • Let students know that they will be learning how to round to the nearest 10 today.
  • Let students know we round when we do not need an exact answer. Rounding makes numbers simpler, but keeps it's value close to the original number.
  • Discuss times in life when we will need to round, such as grocery shopping or when we tell people our age.
