```David,
Just a small point:
We don't need Map, since Round is Listable and N is pretty aggressive, for
example

N[HoldComplete[{{Pi}}]]

HoldComplete[{{3.14159}}]

Thus:

round[n_][num_] := N[Round[10^n*num]/10^n]

mat = Array[Random[] &, {2, 2}]

{{0.374869,0.745659},{0.142273,0.397676}}

roundedmat = round[mat]

{{0.375,0.746},{0.142,0.398}}
