    what a great demonstration of the power of estimation. My find of 2012 was the QAMA calculator that doesn’t deliver the answer to a problem unless the user has input a suitable estimate first. http://www.qamacalculator.com

    So the skill being applied here (and in so many of our students – and teachers? – this skill is completely lost) can be continued in all lessons.

    then estimation isn’t just a topic to be covered, but a way of life!

    and as for other links, there are always the Bowland resources. http://www.bowlandmaths.org.uk
