This worksheet is a rounding decimals exercise designed for students to practice rounding numbers to the place value of the underlined digit. There are eight decimal numbers provided, and each has one digit underlined, signaling to the student which place value they should round to. The worksheet includes a variety of decimal places to be rounded to, such as tenths, hundredths, or whole numbers.

The worksheet’s purpose is to strengthen students’ skills in rounding decimals to different place values, an important concept in mathematics. By identifying the underlined digit, students practice determining the value of that digit within the number and decide whether to round up or down. This skill is essential for making estimations and simplifying numbers in various contexts, from math problems to real-world applications like financial calculations. The self-assessment section with emoticons provides a reflective closure to the activity, encouraging students to think about their learning process and outcomes.
