Estimation


Here's a math activity you can do at home. Ask your child to guess how many things they might find and then count to see how accurate their guess was. They suggest raisins in a small box of raisins. You might rummage through your Halloween candy and ask your child to guess how many M&Ms they might find in a "fun size" bag. Search around, find something to estimate and write it down on a piece of paper.

We'll talk about it on Friday.
