If you are rounding to the nearest 10, look at the digit in the ones place. If it is 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9, round up to the next group of ten. If the digit is 0,1,2,3 or 4 round down. For example, 76 is between 70 and 80. There is a 6 in the ones so you round up to 80. 76 is closer to 80 than 70.
If you are rounding to the nearest 100, look at the digit in the tens place. If it is 5,6,7,8,or 9 round up to the next group of 100. If the digit is 0,1,2,3,or 4 round down. For example, 245 is between 200 and 300. There is a 4 in the tens so you round down to 200. 245 is closer to 200 than 300.
I hope you like all of the updates that were made to our webpage. I recently learned how to take pictures of what we write on our SmartBoard during our lessons. As I get better with the new technology, I will start posting notes from our lessons on this page so you can help your student with his/her homework.
