Age Appropriateness

Half-court Rounding is appropriate for kids ages 7 – 11.

Half-court Rounding is a game in which students try to score as many points as possible by rounding numbers to the nearest ten, hundred, or tenth. This is a perfect game across grade-levels, because students can choose to shoot free-throws (1 point – round to the nearest ten) jump shots (2 points – round to the nearest hundred) and three-pointers (round to the nearest tenth). Users can try any kind of shot within the game and have 90 seconds to score as many as points as possible and beat their opponent. If they answer incorrectly, the student misses the shot. Students can also choose a two-player game where they can play a friend or classmate.
