3 Place Rounding
You are given 3 unique decimal values and asked to round each of the numbers to the nearest whole number, tenths place, and hundredths place.
This worksheet is a practice tool for rounding decimal numbers to various specified place values. It provides three decimal numbers and directs students to round each one to the nearest whole number, tenth, and hundredth. Each decimal is followed by three lines where students can write the rounded numbers. The task requires students to apply their knowledge of rounding rules, considering the value of the digit immediately to the right of the target place value to determine the rounded number.
The worksheet is teaching students the essential mathematical skill of rounding decimal numbers. Rounding is a key concept that helps in estimating figures and simplifying calculations. Through this activity, students learn to approximate numbers to the specified place value, which is a crucial ability in many real-world contexts, such as financial transactions, measurements, and statistical analyses. The exercise also serves to strengthen students’ number sense and understanding of the base-ten system, reinforcing their knowledge of which digits affect the rounding of a number.
