My school requires weekly homework, so I thought I would share something. There is a link to information on Roman and Arabic numerals in lesson 4, however it may no longer be active.
It showed up as such in the lesson:
"Why do you think we use the symbols we do use to represent numbers? Who decided that? "
- To learn more about numbering systems read Roman and ‘Arabic’ Numerals.
I’m attaching the print out of the article, a formative homework I created, and the answer key. Use it however you would like. Well, it said I cannot upload attachments… So I guess once I can, I will upload.
Once they were trying to come up with their own number system, it blew their minds when I told them the Romans used “subtraction” in their number system.
