Rounding Off Numbers
Today in Maths we focused on rounding off numbers to the nearest 10.
So we could round the number 23 off to the nearest ten and it would become 20.
We used this to help us to work out the answers to harder multiplication equations.
Like: 256 X 8 =
We rounded the numbers to the nearest 10 so
256 becomes 260 and 8 becomes 10 so our new equations is:
260 x 10 = 2600
Today we learnt a new strategy. This will help us when we solve problems in our heads!
