Riddle of Rounding
You will identify the underlined place value and then match it the digit in each place row. You will then answer a riddle based on your answers.
This worksheet combines rounding decimal numbers with a word puzzle, providing a dual learning experience. Students are instructed to circle the letter that corresponds to the place value of the underlined digit in a series of decimal numbers. Each row of numbers corresponds to a letter that will be used to solve a riddle at the bottom of the page. This activity requires students to identify the place value of underlined digits within decimal numbers and use those findings to answer a riddle, adding an element of fun to the mathematical exercise.
The worksheet is designed to reinforce students’ understanding of decimal place values while simultaneously engaging their problem-solving skills to decode a riddle. By circling the correct letter associated with the underlined digit’s place value, students practice recognizing the position and significance of digits in decimal numbers. The riddle component serves to motivate students with a playful reward for their calculations, promoting engagement and retention of the concept. Additionally, the self-assessment section with emoticons allows students to reflect on their performance, giving them a chance to express how they feel about their understanding of the topic.
