This activity supports the following 4th grade new Texas math TEKS and Common Core State Standards:
4.4G - rounding to the nearest 10, 100 or 1,000 to estimate solutions
4.4F - division of up to 4 digit by 1 digit numbers
4.4H - multiplication of up to 4 digit by 1 digit or 2 digit by 2 digit numbers.
CCSS 4.OA.A.3 - solving multi-step problems involving the four operations using estimation strategies involving rounding.
If your students are like mine, they often miss the concept of rounding when embedded in a word problem. This activity will support their learning of knowing when to round and when not to round. About half of the task cards require rounding to find the answer and about half do not. As your students practice reading these word problems carefully, they will gain confidence with the skills listed above.
This set includes 24 task cards, and answer document, answer key, and game board. Use them in math stations, guided math groups, for a whole group activity such as SCOOT, for early finishers, tutorial groups etc.
I hope your students learn from and enjoy playing To Round or Not to Round.
