|Lesson Plan ID:
Are Your Numbers Round?
Students will use a variety of activities and games to learn how to round numbers.
This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.
|MA2010(3) ||10. Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100. [3-NBT1] |
|MA2010(4) ||7. Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. [4-NBT2] |
|MA2010(4) ||8. Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place. [4-NBT3] |
Students will be able to compute fluently and make reasonable estimates.
