This week I want you do some research and independent learning about Roman Numerals. Can you share what you know or find out? Are there any good games you can play to help remember the symbols? Where do we see them in real life?
Any useful advice or video clips you find, share with us to help all of our learning! You might even come up with your own questions as well as mine!
Here are some sites that might be useful and some questions I would like you to try and answer:
