In this lesson, students continue rounding decimals using place value reasoning. They round decimals to the nearest ten, tenth, and hundredth. For example, students decompose 9.949 and round to the nearest tenth and hundredth. Then, given a description, students justify what the maximum and minimum possible values of the unknown number is. The justification is done through the use of a vertical number line.
