Roman Numerals

Roman numerals are still used today. Think of where you might see them. See if you can find some more.

Look at the numbers in the box and you will see Roman numerals together with the numbers the way we usually write them.

Roman Numerals
I = 1
II = 2
III = 3
IV = 4
V = 5
VI = 6
VII = 7
VIII = 8
IX = 9
X = 10
L = 50
C = 100
D = 500
M = 1000

Using Roman numerals, design a number plaque for your front door. Write you door or street number in Roman numerals?

MMXIV is the Numeral for 2014

My home street address is MMVIII. However, that seemed to confuse the mailman, so we had to replace it with 2008.

In your lessons folder review the concepts and structural pages. Try to test tension on a variety of materials.

Save the Villa assignment until after you review the last section for the week.
