You can select the numbers you want to practice with, and print out your results when you have finished.
You can also use the practice zone for benchmarking your performance, or using it with a group of children to gauge progress.

Rounding numbers to the nearest 10
When you are rounding a number to the nearest 10, you are trying to find out which multiple of 10 your number is closest to.
The golden rule with rounding is that if a number is exactly halfway between two multiples of 10, you always round up.
Rounding numbers to the nearest 100
When you are rounding a number to the nearest 100, you are trying to find out which multiple of 100 your number is closest to.
Rounding numbers to the nearest 1000
When you are rounding a number to the nearest 1000, you are trying to find out which multiple of 1000 your number is closest to.
When you are rounding decimals, you will either be rounding to the nearest whole number, or you will be rounding to a given number of decimal places or significant figures.
Rounding numbers to Significant Figures
Rounding to significant figures is different from rounding to decimal places.
The first significant figure is the first non-zero digit a number has.
The second significant figure is the digit after the 1st significant figure.
The third significant figure is the digit after the 2nd significant figure, and so on.
See below for help to round a number to a set number of significant figures.
