PP2 Chunk 3


Today you are going to be rounding decimals, so yesterday's work on place value should come in handy!


Warm-up: Play this game (select the last option "Up To 9.9 to Nearest Whole Number") to practise your rounding skills! 


Below are a selection of videos for you to watch to refresh your memory on the rules of rounding decimals:

Rounding decimals: to the nearest tenth | Decimals | Pre-Algebra | Khan Academy

Rounding Decimals | Round to the Nearest Hundredth

This video also shows skills of rounding to the nearest hundredth (or nearest 2 decimal places). It has a useful rhyme to help us remember the rounding rules, and includes a few more examples.

Why do we use rounding in real life?
