This Year 5 Using Rounding Game checks pupils’ understanding of using rounding to estimate and approximate the answers to addition and subtraction calculations. Pupils will select the place on a number line where the approximate answer to a calculation lies, use rounding to estimate the total to a word problem, match the calculations where the approximate answer is the same, estimate the answer to a problem, and select the correct method.
