Maths Support Week 1 Summer 2

The first week back after half term, the children will be focussing on place value. The children will round any number up to 1,000,000 to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10000 or 100000.

Rounding to the nearest 100

To round a number to the nearest 100, look at the tens digit. If the tens digit is 5 or more, round up. If the tens digit is 4 or less, round down.

  • The tens digit in 3281 is 8. So we round it up to 3300.
  • The tens digit of 3216 is 1. So we round it down to 3200

When rounding to the nearest 100, 3281 becomes 3300.

Rounding to the nearest 1000

To round a number to the nearest 1000, look at the hundreds digit. If the hundreds digit is 5 or more, round up. If the hundreds digit is 4 or less, round down.

  • The hundreds digit in 4559 is 5. So we round it up to 5000.
  • The hundreds digit of 4295 is 2. So we round it down to 4000.
