We do rounding off when a number is not exact. Since numbers could have infinite decimals next to them, this is when rounding is applicable. In this worksheet, we will learn how to do rounding off to the nearest whole number.
What is Rounding?
Rounding off means making or converting a number to its simpler form. We do it by keeping its value closer to the next number. It is done for whole numbers, and for decimals at different place values of hundreds, thousands, etc.
What is a Whole Number?
A whole number is any number of positive integers including zero. The whole number does not contain any decimal or fractional part.

Instructions on how to use the “Rounding to the Nearest Whole Number Worksheet”
In the first part of this worksheet, there will be a discussion containing the information and lectures you need to know about rounding off. It will also include the steps on how to round off to the nearest whole number.
After the discussion, it will be followed by a 10-item activity for the application of the discussion. This part will test if the learner learned the concepts and rounding off to the nearest whole number. After it will be another activity wherein the learner will make their example of rounding off to the nearest whole number and provide the answer for them.
Towards the end, a reflective section is provided to help the learner think about their thinking (metacognition) and assess how they performed in the lesson.
