Grade Six: Reviewing the Roman number system
Sixth graders have been gaining a better understanding of the Roman numeral system. Time has been spent in class practicing and reviewing. However, most students should continue practicing at home. All sixth graders made number cards that can be used. Parents can call out a number under 4,000 and their son or daughter can make it with the cards—or parents can build a number with the cards and the sixth grader can tell what its value is in our system.
Below are some other ways that you sixth graders can prepare for next Monday’s quiz.
This is a website that has a very complete explanation of the Roman system. It also has a converter where you can enter a Roman number and get its Hindu-Arabic equivalent. The site also has a link to worksheets that you can print off for more practice it you want. http://www.dadsworksheets.com/roman-numeral-converter.html
Here is a website that reviews the rules and also has some practice questions at the very bottom of it.
This website has lots of practice quizzes (and it says you can take them over and over and they are different). There are also number charts, a calculator, and some videos (one is really for university students but you should understand it, and the other is a music video—you can be entertained while you review!).
Textbook: Pp. 12-14 goes over how to use Roman numerals. I don’t think their explanations are as easy to understand as the first website, but there are some good practice problems.
