Maths

Using the

Target your Maths

booklet, complete

Rounding page 10.

(Click the picture!)

Choose column A, B or C to complete.

Try to challenge yourself!

Remember!

If the digit before is 1,2,3,4, then the digit you are  rounding to stays the same

If the digit before is 5,6,7,8,9 then the digit you are rounding to goes up to the next number, e.g

round 346 to the nearest 10

346

The 4 is in the 10s column so this is the number we will focus on. 

The number before the 4 is the number that will decide if we round up or if it stays the same.

The number before is 6

6 rounds up.

So our 10s number 4 goes to the next number 5.

Making the rounded number 350.

Remember!

"Factor Rainbows"

factor is a number that divides into

another number exactly and without leaving a remainder. Most numbers 

have an even number

 of factors; however, a square number has an odd number of factors. A prime number has only two factors - the number itself and 1.
