The Influence of Number-Sense on Children's Ability to Estimate Measures.
Pike, Christopher D.; Forrester, Michael A.
Educational Psychology: An International Journal of Experimental Educational Psychology, v17 n4 p483-500 Dec 1997
Explores relative developmental influences of age, number-sense, and context on primary school children's ability to estimate measures. Finds that, although number-sense improved with age, estimation did not; ability to perceive number relations influenced ability to estimate area; and estimation was more accurate in textbook exercises than in a "story" context.
