Rounding is finding a number that is close to another number. The reason for
rounding is to find numbers that are easy to work with. That’s why you round threedigit numbers to the nearest ten or hundred. A number line can help you understand
how rounding is done.

The number line shows that 8 is nearer to 10 than to 0. It also shows that 13 is nearer
to 10 than to 20. What about 5? The dot is at 5. It is halfway between 0 and 10. The
rule for rounding is that 5 rounds up to 10.
Rounding to the Nearest Hundred

The number line can help you see that 25 is nearer to 0 than to 100. Also, 175 is nearer
to 200 than to 100. Even though 50 is halfway between 0 and 100, the rules says that
it rounds to 100. But, 49 is nearer to 0 than to 100.

Use Place Value to Round Numbers
Lesson Objectives
The Learning Progression
•Round two- and three-digit numbers to the
nearest 10.
In grade 2, students learned that each digit in a threedigit number represents a quantity of hundreds, tens,
and ones. This understanding leads to the concept of
bundling groups of 10 ones to make tens and groups
of 10 tens to make hundreds. In grade 3, students
extend this place value knowledge to round numbers
to the nearest 10 or 100. In grade 4, rounding whole
numbers is extended to any place.
•Round three-digit numbers to the nearest 100.
•Explain how to round numbers to the nearest 10 and
to the nearest 100.
Prerequisite SkilLs
In order to be proficient with the concepts/skills in this
lesson, students should:
•Identify the hundreds, tens, and ones places in
numbers.
Later in grade 3, students multiply one-digit whole
numbers by multiples of 10 in the range 10–90. They
will use place-value strategies to help them with this
concept.
•Understand the value of the hundreds, tens, and
ones digits and places in numbers.

•Skip count by 10s and 100s.

Concept Extension
Explain to students that when rounding numbers,
the digit that is rounded either stays the same or is
increased by one, and one or more of the digits on
the right are changed to zero.
•First students should determine what place the
number will be rounded to and identify that digit
in the number.
•Direct students to look to the digit directly to the
right of the digit you are rounding to.

Mathematical Discourse
•How do you decide which ten a number is closest to
when rounding to the nearest ten?
Students should first be able to identify
which tens a given number is between (for
example, the number 16 is between 10 and 20).
Students should be able to communicate an
understanding of the concept that if the ones
place is less than 5 the number is closer to the
smaller ten and if the ones place is 5 or greater
then number is closer to the larger ten.
•If the digit to the right is less than 5, that digit
becomes zero (along with any other digits to the
right) and the digit to be rounded stays the same.
•If the digit to the right is 5 or greater, that digit
becomes zero (along with any other digits to the
right) and the digit to be rounded is increased
by one.

round up or down. They should communicate
that when rounding to the nearest ten, the ones
place becomes zero and when rounding to the
nearest hundred, the tens and ones places

•Ask a student to use the blocks to help explain
how to round the number to the nearest 10. Have
a different student explain rounding the number
to the nearest 100.

15 Solution: 500; The number 476 is between 400 and
500. 5 tens is halfway between hundreds. 7 tens is
greater than 5 tens, so round up to 500.
Error Alert: Students who wrote 480 rounded
to the nearest ten. Students who wrote 400 did not
round properly. Those students did not realize that
7 tens is greater than 5 tens.

At a Glance
Students use place value concepts to solve problems
involving rounding whole numbers to the nearest 10 or
to the nearest 100.
Step By Step
•Ask students to solve the problems individually and
label their work appropriately.
•When students have completed each problem, have
them Pair/Share to discuss their solutions with a
partner or in a group.
Solutions
Ex Base-ten blocks are shown as one way to solve the
problem. The number 362 is between the tens 360
and 370. The halfway point between 360 and 370 is
365. 362 is less than 365, so round down to 360.

What kinds of mistakes
69
17 Solution: 900; The number 879 is between 800 and
900. 5 tens is halfway between any two hundreds.
7 tens is greater than 5 tens, so round up to 900.
(DOK 1)
18 Solution: \$480 and \$130; Students can reason that
479 is greater than 475, so it rounds up to 480. Also,
129 is greater than 125, so it rounds up to 130.
(DOK 1)
19 Solution: A; The digit in the tens place is less than 5, so
leave 4 as the digit in the hundreds place and replace
the digits in the tens and ones places with zeros.
Explain to students why the other two answer
choices are not correct:
B is not correct because the number needs to be
rounded to the nearest hundred; the student tried to
round to the nearest ten but erroneously rounded 6
D is not correct because 5 tens is halfway between
any two hundreds, and 1 ten is less than 5 tens;
round down to 400 instead of up to 500. (DOK 3)

Remind students to read the question carefully. The question
asks to round 453 to the nearest ten, not hundred. Even when
rounding to the nearest hundred, 453 would round up to 500
because 453 is closer to 500 than to 400.

Allow students to practice with smaller numbers, and use a

Hands-On Activity
Challenge Activity
Use a rounding game to understand rounding
numbers.
Tell students that a number rounds down to the
nearest ten but rounds up to the nearest hundred.
Ask students to show two different numbers that fit
this situation. [Possible answer: 272 rounds down
to 270 but up to 300. 361 rounds down to 360 but
up to 400.]
Materials: playground ball, card stock paper, tape.
•Assign each student a number in tens or hundreds.
Have students write the numbers on paper and
tape them on the front of their shirts.
•Have students stand in a large circle facing in.
•Randomly call out a number and whether it should
be rounded to the nearest 10 or 100. Be sure to
describe situations that fit with the students’
numbers. The student holding the ball will toss it
to the student who has the rounded number.
•Continue the cycle of play until all students have
had at least one chance to toss the ball.
