A set of slides that can be used as a lesson presentation to work on the place value of numbers through rounding. Included are a range of questions and a visual representations of how numbers can be broken up into different place values to try and help round them.
KS2 rounding numbers puzzles worksheets for revision of rounding to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, whole number, 1 decimal place, 2 decimal places and rounding to the nearest pound (dollar version also included). Ideal activities for Year 4, and especially Year 5 and 6, as part of the back to school place value unit. An engaging alternative to standard worksheets, these Hidden Word puzzles make ideal Maths / Numeracy starter tasks, early finisher or homework activities. They can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. All solutions provided.
The file contains 7 and their solutions: rounding 2-digit numbers to the nearest ten, 3-digit numbers to the nearest hundred, 4-digit numbers to the nearest thousand and various size decimal numbers to the nearest whole number, 1 decimal place and 2 decimal places. Puzzle 7 comes in two versions - rounding to the nearest pound / rounding to the nearest dollar.
These puzzles are similar to codebreaker puzzles, with a maths-related word to be revealed after the rounding work. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a number to be rounded and a letter. Once pupils have rounded all the numbers, they cross out any boxes containing numbers that round to certain specified target numbers (whether it is to the nearest 10, 1 decimal place etc). Then they put together the letters from the remaining boxes to reveal a maths word. If the word is more simple, the letters are in random order for pupils to reassemble. If it is a trickier word (such as a famous mathematician), the letters are already placed in the correct order in the grid. There is a further challenge question / task at the bottom of the page linked to the hidden word, such as researching a mathematician on the computer or giving information about a particular kind of 2D shape.
The range of puzzles in this resource is ideal for differentiation and revision and / or to cater for a range of groups and classes across Key Stage 2 (KS2) and early KS3.
