Rounding Numbers:

Rocket Rounding Game


Rocket Rounding is a multiple-choice game which focuses on rounding numbers to tens, hundreds and whole numbers. 

There are two alternative game modes. The first features a number line which provides an excellent introduction to the concept of rounding.

The second mode is more challenging as children have to round numbers without a visual indication.

Levels progress from rounding “Up to 99 to the Nearest 10” to “Up to 9.9 to the Nearest Whole Number”.

Rocket Rounding is tablet friendly. 

For the best experience press the full-screen icon in the top right corner of the game.
