In math, our class has been working on ROUNDING!

It can be a tricky skill, so Frogger has a

few tips and rules to help!

Frogger's Radical Rounding Rules!

**1. Underline the place value position to which you are rounding.**

**2. Draw an arrow to the neighbor**on the right.

3.Writewhich two tensortwo hundredsthe number is between.4. If the neighbor next door is 5 or more, round up, round up!

**5. If it's not, round down!**

6. Circle the correct estimate/answer.

Remember, we call numbers round because they end with zero!

### Example: Round 74 to the nearest 10

__7__4 is between 70 and 80- The digit next door to the tens place is 4, so
*round down*to 70

**Answer: 70**

(74 gets "rounded down")

### Example: Round 86 to the nearest 10

__8__6 is between 80 and 90- The digit next door to the tens place is 6, so
*round up*to 90

**Answer: 90**

(86 gets "rounded up")

Here are some great examples from our recent practice in class:

Nearest ten

Nearest hundred

Nearest thousand

Once others write comments, look for question you can answer!

Dear Class,

ReplyDeleteRounding is fun! I tried the quiz and did pretty good. If you have not given it a shot, I recommend it.

Dear Class,

ReplyDeleteWhat is the answer to 78,965 rounded to the nearest ten thousand?

What is the answer to 673 rounded to the nearest ten?

What is the answer to 8,937 rounded to the nearest ten?

@Lucas,

DeleteThanks for your

challengingproblems!The answer to the first on is 80,000.

In the second problem, the two tens that 673 is between are 670 and 680. We know we're going to round down, so the answer to the second one is 670!

In the last problem,8,937 is between 8,930 and 8,940, and we will round up,

sothe answer is....8,940!

Are we correct?

Lucas, here's one for you to solve:

What is 375,982 rounded to the nearest hundred thousand and also to the nearest ten thousand?!

Dear class,

ReplyDeleteI have a problem for you. What is the answer to 10,999,999

roundedto the nearest ten million? I have another problem for you, what is the answer to 99,999,999roundedto the nearest ten? I wonder who can get both problems right!Your classmate,

No♠ah

Dear Mrs. Ranney and Class,

ReplyDeleteI am so thrilled with the way that you are learning rounding. What a great way to write down both rounding choices and then circle the correct answer. I am learning a lot by watching Kim do her homework. Way to go Mrs. Ranney and team. Good luck on your tests tomorrow.

Best,

Kim's Mom

Dear Mrs.Ranney and Class,

ReplyDeleteYou are correct.

I know I'm going to round up because of the seven in the ten thousand place. The answer to the question is 400,000.

I'm going to round up because of the five in the thousands place and the answer to the other question is 380,000.

It was not

sheerluck that I answered the questions.I

lovemath even though questions are likeboulderssometimes, because sometimes they are hard to answer just likebouldersare hard to move.I want this to be a

HUGEpost.Cheers,
