This post explains and give practice opportunities related to TEKS 3.2C:
represent a number on a number line as being between two consecutive multiples of 10; 100; 1,000; or 10,000 and use words to describe relative size of numbers in order to round whole numbers
This standard can get easily dumbed down to rounding numbers but, when ready completely, is much more than that. Looking at the TEKS, students should know that numbers sit between consecutive multiples of 10, 100, or 1,000 on a number line in order to round using words.
Oral Language Development
Students process information through talking and conversing, not simply listening or watching a teacher demonstration. Here are so talk structures aligned with 3.2C to help you students unmute in the classroom.
