Estimation Games

This interactivity presents estimation challenges in over two dozen math content areas, including counting, whole and decimal operations, measurements, and fraction/decimal equivalents. Rather than needing exact answers, students earn zero to 5 points based on the closeness of each of their estimates completed in a fixed time period. A link to a brief tutorial introduction is provided (cataloged separately).

      Estimation – What's the Point?
      By Uncle Bob on 05/22/2012 - 10:28
    • The point is that estimation is one math skill that we want to do quickly. This timed game offers plenty of variety and content areas. In the topic length, be careful because the length of the unit changes.
