Roman Numerals

We have been thinking about all of the different ways that we might see Roman numerals today. Here are some of the ways that we came up with:

  • Roman numerals are often used in books, on many occasions to number the chapters.
  • In plays, they separate acts into sections.
  • Roman numerals can be seen on clocks and watches. 
  • Royal families use the system where they pass down a family name and then use a Roman numeral to signify the family member. For example, if a king's name is George and his father and grandfather were also named George, that would make him George III.
