Are your students able to explain their mathematical thinking? Can they use number lines and math terms to accurately round whole numbers?
This 4 page set includes 4 math problems, aligned with the Common Core Standard 4.NBT.2 and 4.NBT.3. There are 2 math journals for each standard.
Each question encourages students to round a number to a given place, write multi-digit numbers, and explain their thinking. Students are challenged the write numbers in word form, expanded form, and standard notation. Use these journals for independent practice, a wrap up, or quick assessment. You could easily differentiate by giving students different journals based on their level!
*Note: These questions could be used to challenge Grade 3 or for intervention in Grade 5. An answer key is not included because student answers can and SHOULD vary!
This set has many uses in your math class! Enjoy!
