Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free Rounding to the nearest 10, 100, and 1000 worksheet of 44 questions and answers
Rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000 is a form of approximating numbers, making numbers easier to read and work with. Calculations using rounding will lead to an estimated answer.
For example, to round a 4 digit number to the nearest thousand we can use a number line to see which thousand it is nearest to. Any number with a hundreds digit of 5 or more will round up to the next thousand and any number with a hundreds digit of 4 or less will round down to the previous thousand.
We can also round numbers to the nearest whole number, a given number of decimal places or a given number of significant figures.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional number worksheets, for example an equivalent fractions & ordering fractions worksheet or simplifying fractions worksheet.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
