Computational Estimation Strategies of Professional Mathematicians.
Dowker, Ann
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v23 n1 p45-55 Jan 1992
Described are the strategies of 44 academic mathematicians on a set of computational estimation problems involving elementary multiplication and division. Discussion centers on the theoretical implications evident from pretest/posttest results in terms of the variety of strategies used and how the choice of strategy changed across the two tests.
