In this chapter, pupils read Roman numerals to 100 (I to C).

Pupils extend their reading of Roman numerals up to 100 (C) from 12 (XII). Outside of mathematics lessons, and maybe even the classroom, pupils encounter Roman numerals in their original historical context. In doing so, they understand that there are different ways to write whole numbers and that the important concepts of zero and place value have been introduced over a period of time.

Roman numerals to 100 (C)

Mathematical discussion is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Talk Tasks are a brilliant way of enabling pupils to develop their mathematical language, thinking, understanding and confidence.

This activity explores the concept of Roman numerals to 100 (C).

• Talk tasks are best completed in mixed attainment pairs, with pupils taking turns to listen and construct arguments
• Emphasis is on discussion rather than the solution, encouraging pupils to use key language and talk in full sentences
• Ask pupils to prove their answers in a variety of ways, using the CPA approach to support mathematical understanding and number sense

Like what you see? Mathematics Mastery is a professional development programme for teachers with a mission to transform mathematics education in the UK.

This task is just a taster of the complete classroom resources we offer. We also provide in-depth development training, online CPD, specialist support and assessment tools.

We believe all elements of our programme are vital in creating lasting change – enabling every child to enjoy and succeed in mathematics.

Roman Numerals Activity

An activity I used with higher ability year 4 pupils. First activity is understanding the value of Roman Numerals, this leads on to adding using Roman Numerals. Links to objectives from the new curriculum.

Roman Numerals mastery KS2

Roman Numeral addition and subtraction questions with numbers missing
e.g.
LIX - ??? = XIV
??? + XXXVIII = XCVI

3 differentiated sheets - bronze, silver and gold.

Also, an extension task on roman numeral sequences
(quite tricky with square and cubed numbers and prime numbers)

Roman Numeral Problems

Using Roman Numerals in calculations, code breaking.
