From: Lourdes To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2001102116:26:41 Subject: rounding numbers I tell my students that the numbers are neighbors in a neighborhood If the neighbor on the right of the number to be rounded es 5 or greater he is rich and lends his neighbor money in this case adding one to the number then the neighbor leaves and a zero takes his place. If the neighbor is 4 0r less he is poor and cannot lend him money so he stays the same but the poor neighbor leaves to find more money and a zero takes his place.
