Roman numerals were used in ancient Rome to express numbers. They have mostly been replaced by the numeral system we use today, however they continue to have some minor applications. Students may encounter Roman numerals on various publications, architecture, and objects. Some places where students may see Roman numerals include:

  • Some sporting events like the Super Bowl are named using the Roman numerals system. For example, the 2015 event was named Super Bowl XLIX. The XLIX represents the Arabic numeral 49, since this was the 49th¬†event.
  • Roman numerals are also commonly found on pieces of architecture. For example, the Statue of Liberty, in the United States, has "July IV MDCCLXXVI" inscribed on it. This represents the date July 4, 1776.
  • Roman numerals can also be found on some objects. For example, many clocks list the hours in Roman numerals instead of Arabic numerals. The hours are listed as I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, and XII.

These customizable flashcards are designed to assist students in learning the Roman numerals system. They can be customized to include any group of numerals between I (1) and IC (99).
