Fifth-grade students extend their understanding of place value by working with decimals to the thousandths place. Students at this grade have a deep understanding of place value and number sense, so they can explain and reason about rounded answers.

Students are expected to apply rounding while estimating an approximation and to determine the reasonableness of an answer.
