Circle Rounding

Worksheet Description

You are given a series of decimal values and will circle all of the values that could possibly be rounded to a specific number.

This worksheet is a math exercise focused on rounding decimals. It contains three sections, each asking students to circle the decimals that round up to a specific number: 2, 73, and 5, respectively. Students are presented with a list of decimal numbers and need to determine which ones, when rounded to the nearest whole number, match the target number given for each section. The worksheet has a decorative border and includes a small feedback section at the bottom where students can indicate how they think they performed by coloring in one of three faces ranging from happy to sad.

The worksheet is designed to teach students the concept of rounding decimal numbers to the nearest whole number. It aims to help students understand how to approximate decimal numbers to simplify them, which is an important skill in mathematics for estimation and practical applications. By circling the correct decimals, students practice identifying whether a decimal will round up or down based on the digits present. The progressive difficulty of the sections allows for reinforcement of the concept and checks students’ understanding through self-assessment with the emoticon-based feedback system at the bottom.
