The Effect of Instruction on the Development of Computational Estimation Strategies.
Bobis, Janette
Mathematics Education Research Journal, v3 n1 p17-29 1991
Fifth-grade students (n=101) were studied to determine the effect of instruction on (1) the development of computational estimation strategies; (2) types of estimation errors made; and (3) estimation skills. Results indicate students adopt the estimation strategies taught and that introducing mathematical concepts through estimation increases students' estimation skills. (16 references) (MDH)
