To round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000
Rounding numbers is a really useful skill. It allows us to work with more complicated numbers easily and, although calculations are slightly less accurate, they are close enough for us to be able to give an ‘estimate’. Estimation (a sensible guess based on what you know) is a key skill when problem-solving. It can show up a mistake easily and allows you to demonstrate working with numbers confidently.
Watch the video guidance, make notes then have a go at the rounding worksheet. Good luck!
