Review Ö eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Bruce Goldstone

How many jelly beans are on this book's cover Don't count estimateIf someone handed you a big bowl of jelly beans how would you figure out how many there are You could count them on. This is a great resource for teaching kids some concrete ways to improve in estimation skills However I prefer Bruce Goldstone's 2nd book on this topic Greater Estimations I feel like that one is a little fun has greater variety and gives opportunity to practice different types of estimation skills Plus the epilogue at the end beats the pants off this one The two books could be used in tandem; also I would say this first one is geared toward a bit younger crowd and Greater Estimations for slightly older kids Both are great for elementary school though

Review Great Estimations

Great EstimationsE by one or you could estimate Do you see than five jelly beans Less than a millionThis uniue book will show you how to train your eyes and your mind to make really great estimation. This is an amazing book for teaching children about estimation I find that this is a difficult topic to teach about other than loads of practice This book teaches children about training their eyes to estimate knowing what groups of 10 and 100 look like how to clump count groups of objects how to box count items and how to make estimations of items in jars and containers The books progresses from simpler estimation techniues to difficult ones so I could see introducing each topic one at a time and practicing using that topic before reading the next section Another aspect of this book that makes is so great for the classroom is the rich math vocabulary that the author used They did not talk down to the reader as they didn’t know what estimation was but spoke to the reader with great math vocabulary which often makes young children feel even proud of their newfound knowledge
