Estimates

Definition of an Estimate:  A guess of the actual value or number of something with some thought or mathematical calculation involved. Example: I guess there are 80 gumballs shown in the picture at the top of this page. I based that on multiplying 10 (column) times 8 (row). You can count them, if you wish, and see how close I came to this estimate.

Lesson Idea for Teachers:  Estimating with Dinosaurs: Provide a set of 8 different pictures of dinosaurs, and place one set on each student's desk.  Individually the students will examine the picture and estimate the size they think the dinosaur are if they were real. Each student will write down his or her answer. Afterwards students will check an Encyclopedia to find the actual measurements of the dinosaurs. Lesson details
