This detailed notes page explains how to make estimating EASY using compatible numbers.
Vocabulary is defined and allows for students to explore how this method would make estimation easy.
Steps are broken down with detail to help students develop understanding of rounding, along with which place value makes the most sense to round to (students often get stuck when told to estimate because they aren't specifically told which place value to round to!)
*A number line is provided to help visualize what their number is "closest to"
10 practice questions are also provided for independent practice time. The last question ups the rigor, where students are asked to estimate the product of three numbers.
