Lesson objective: Round whole numbers to multiple places.

This lesson helps to build fluency with rounding. A number line is used because it offers a visual and establishes benchmark numbers and midpoint within a range of numbers based on place value.  This work develops students' understanding that the same number can be round to multiple places.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 8 (look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning) as they use the structure of the base 10 system to generalize their strategies to round a six digit number to different place values.

Key vocabulary:

• place
• place value
• round
• tie

Special materials needed:

• paper
• pencil
