Karachi: Maths estimating Challenge

Estimation is common practise of our everyday life however it is a mental math skill which needs to be taught to young children. Casa G and Casa H of Advance Montessori (Karachi Campus) were introduced to this concept of estimation in their Maths Class which was further implanted among the students through multiple hands-on activities.
In one such activity students were asked to scoop out certain objects like skittles, pompoms and counters about which entire class estimated the amount before counting the actual numbers. Students enjoyed making guesses while approximating and were able to grasp the concept of less than, more than and close to.
