# Learning Roman Numerals

It’s time to have fun exploring roman numerals.

In this amusing video, children will review a new way to read and write numbers. By practicing this topic, young learners develop their number sense, better understand how numbers work, and increase mental math skills. In the past, people had no way of writing large numbers. They needed a way to represent these numbers using symbols or groups of symbols.

Roman numerals were developed to solve this problem. They use symbols from our alphabet, but they are written differently than the letters we usually see. Unlike our current numerical system, which is base 10, Roman numerals are base 5. This means that the symbols used to represent numbers correspond with their value and not what digit they represent on a number line.

The most important thing to remember is that V stands for 5 and I stands for 1.

V = 5

X = 10

L = 50

D = 500

M = 1000

The monkey CG has prepared a lot of fun strategies to investigate the world of Roman numerals step by step. The hints will help kids grasp this math concept, and learning will become a breeze for them. You can use this video to inspire kids to hone their knowledge in classes or self-practicing at home.
