Title – Roman Numeral Math
By – Telitha Lucier
Secondary Subjects – Math
Grade Level – 9-12

This lesson gives the history of Roman Numerals and it also lets students practice some math skills using Roman Numerals instead of Arabic Numerals.

Roman Numerals:

Give the students the background information and what each of the seven letters stands for in modern day times.

     I      
1
     V      
5
     X      
10
     L      
50
     C      
100
     D      
500
     M      
1000

I had the students complete a chart much like the one below, and then they were asked to complete the math problems (in Arabic Numerals). Though the problems are more to a high school level, they could be adapted to fit any age group.

Fill in the chart:

XX

XXX          
  
LM

Complete the following problems:

L – XV =

CL + IV =

M – DL =

C/X =

-VII/IV(-VII) =

VII + III(V) – V =

-III(VIII) =
