Year 5 Investigate Rounding

This week Year 5 have been investigating rounding numbers. The children have used 3 dice to create 3 digits that were then re-arranged into 6, 3-digit numbers. Each number was then rounded to the nearest 100 and it was noted if the number had been rounded up or down.  After repeating this a few times, the children noticed a pattern and were then able to predict how many of the numbers would round up or down just by looking at the dice!
