Big Ideas: Rounding is an appropriate strategy for solving problems and estimating. Numbers can be decomposed and recomposed to add and subtract. This lesson builds on student knowledge of place value of whole numbers less than or equal to 1000. This task uses a range of weights for endangered animals for students to apply rounding principles to make totals of 1000 and 2000 using addition and subtraction strategies. This builds conceptual understanding of rounding to build upon for practical use for problem solving using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Vocabulary: base-ten, expanded form, place value, accurate, complements, commutative property, partial sums Special Materials: blank number lines and place value chart (optional)
