Subject: Re: front end estimation
I agree this is a useless method. I read my daughter's math book and couldn't find any system to how they were adjusting the numbers after performing the front end estimation. I have a BS in Electrical Engineering and had to year's of math. You would think this would be easy for me. If I don't get it how is a child suppose to understand? This is why our children are having such a hard time in school. We should stick with the basic math concepts.
