We have been learning how to estimate numbers. This allows us to quickly figure out about what the answer to a math problem will be.
To estimate means to round. Estimating and rounding are very useful in everyday life. You don’t always have time to figure out the exact amount of things.
Below is a “Room 314 News” video with examples of estimating while shopping. The hosts are Strawberry, Rudolph, and Frosty, with help from some holiday shoppers.
