Roman Numerals

The Olympic games are always numbered using Roman numerals. Write the Roman numeral XXVII(27) on the board to show your class how this Olympic year is represented. Have several other Roman numerals written next to their equivalent numbers. Have your students figure out the "code" for Roman numerals and then have them write some numbers in Roman numeral style.
