The Romans had a completely different number system. We often write Roman numerals after the names of kings and queens, for example Henry VIII instead of Henry 8th.

The Romans only had seven symbols.

                       

1,2,3 is I, II, III but 4 is IV which is 1 less than 5. 

6 is VI which is 1 more than 5. 

10,20 30 is X, XX, XXX but 40 is XL which is 10 less than 50.

60 is LX which is 10 more than 50

Examples:

12 = 10 + 2 = X + II = XII

523 = 500 + 20 + 3 = D + XX + III = DXXIII

982 = 900 + 80 + 2 = CM + LXXX + II = CMLXXXII

 

Task– Print or draw out a 10x10 hundred square grid and complete by writing 1-100 in Roman numerals. If you are drawing your table, use the squares in your book to help you. 

Then, convert the Roman numeral dates on the sheet below into digits and put the events in order.
