From: Andrew To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2002122120:37:24 Subject: Front-End estimation is usless My son has just received an assignment with "front-end estimation" problems in it. He has said that many kids in his class got questions like this and they did very bad on the assignment. I would like to help him, but I know nothing about this apparently useless kind of estimation. Can somebody help? PS-Are there any solid rules to this type of estimation?
