L.O: Round numbers to the nearest ten. 


Today I would like you to round two digit numbers to the nearest ten. Here is the general rule for roumnding: if the number has a 5 6 7 8 or 9 in the one column, then you round the number up to the nearest ten. If the number has a 1 2 3 or 4 in the ones column then you round the number down to the nearest ten.


For example:



47 to the nearest ten= 50



23 to the nearest ten= 20


The rhyme below will help you remember this:
