From: Racquel <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2012013115:26:12 Subject: Decimal Computation I think the idea of having students estimate the product is rather effective as students, upon deciding their answer will realize whether or not they are close or very far. Students need to be involved in a lot more estimating activities before being allowed to do actual computations.
