Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

In this lesson, we will round numbers up to 10 million to the nearest thousand. When rounding to the nearest thousand, we're trying to find what thousand the number is nearest to. Firstly, we need to identify the thousands column. It can be useful to circle this. A thousand is any number that has nothing in the 100s, 10s and units’ columns. So, we put zeros in these columns, the ones to the right of the thousand’s column, then we look in the hundreds column to see if we need to round up or down. If there's a four or less, we round down. If there's five or more, we round up. Drawing on a number line can help us see this. For example, 547,682. So, we look in the hundreds column and see a six. That means we need to round up and the seven goes up to an eight.
