Subject: How do I teach rounding to fourth graders who just don't seem to get it?
Hello, I am trying to teach rounding to a group of students and several of them still don't seem to get the concept. The strategy that seems to work the best is to have them round up if the number before is 5 or more, or round off if it is 4 or less. Do you know of any other strategies that other teachers have found successful? Thanks for the help! Alden Goodwin
