Whole, Tenths, and Hundredths
This worksheet consists of 12 problems that will have you round assorted decimal values to the nearest whole number, tenths, or hundredths.
This worksheet is designed to practice rounding decimals to various place values. It is divided into three sections, with each section dedicated to rounding numbers to a different place value: the nearest whole number, the nearest tenth, and the nearest hundredth. Students are required to round the given decimals accordingly and indicate whether they had to round up or round down to reach their answer.
The worksheet aims to teach students the rules and concepts of rounding decimals, an essential skill in mathematics. Rounding is not only a basic arithmetic tool but also a practical skill used in everyday life for estimating and simplifying numbers. Through this exercise, students learn to determine which direction to round a decimal based on the digit in the place value immediately to the right of the one they are rounding to. This reinforces their understanding of place value and prepares them for more complex mathematical operations that involve estimation and approximation.
