Exploring Decimals: Rounding Money
Building on their learning from the previous lesson, children will learn how to round amounts of money to the nearest whole pound. The slides recap how to do this, before going on to rounding different amounts to the nearest whole pound, adding the amounts together to find an approximate price. Children are encouraged to work out answers mentally wherever possible. Children can then use a menu to round amounts of money to see how approximately how much different customers spent on their meals. Alternatively, they can do some online 'shopping’ of their own!
