Students' misconceptions when rounding to the nearest 1000 is the focus of this resource from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching. It illustrates how, when asked to round a value to the nearest 1000, some students mistakenly round to the nearest 10, then the nearest 100 and finally to the nearest 1000, giving an incorrect answer. Practice in rounding is provided by some follow-up exercises.
