Teaching Kids to Estimate.
Bestgen, Barbara; Reys, Robert
Instructor, v91 n8 p58-60 Apr 1982
Basic strategies for developing computational estimation skills are: (1) the front-end strategy, focusing on the front-end digits of the numbers; (2) the rounding strategy, rounding the original numbers to more manageable numbers; (3) the compatible number strategy, changing the original numbers to ones more similar and more manageable; and (4) the averaging strategy, centered on a particular number value.
