Introduce the topic using the Smart Notebook activity.

8 identical pages, each with a blank number line, a movable arrow to show the position of the number to be rounded and a sentence at the bottom to state what is happening.

Learners can fill in the ends of the number line to see what values are relevant to the question i.e. rounding 23 to the nearest 10 would be either 20 or 30 as an answer. Then they can move the arrow to the position needed, 23, then see which value the number is closest to.

This spreadsheet is designed to enable students to check their own work; but also to learn about what happens when you add two decimals, or multiply two fractions, and so on.

The spreadsheet consists of the following sheets:

This spreadsheet generates numbers randomly to help with learning or practising addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, rounding, estimating, comparing number size…

You can project these onto a screen or have the students work with pen & paper in front of a computer, refreshing the numbers themselves.

Three interactive sheets: paint calculator and carpet costs (area) and storage space (volume).
