9781250079619: Greater Estimations: A Fun Introduction to Estimating Large Numbers

How many rubber duckies are on the cover of this book? You could count each one―or you could estimate. An estimate is a good guess. Are there more than ten rubber ducks? Are there fewer than a thousand?

Those estimates are not very accurate. A great estimate is close to the real number. Filled with fun, creative examples, this follow up to Great Estimations will show you how to train your eyes and your mind to make really great estimations about length, volume, area, and much more. This title has Common Core connections.

About the Author:

Bruce Goldstone estimates that he spent about 5 hours setting up more than 1,100 rubber ducks for the cover of this book. He is the author of many books including Great Estimations, Awesome Autumn, That's a Possibility!, and I See a Pattern Here. He lives in New York City and Buenos Aires.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–5—Goldstone builds on the topics introduced in Great Estimations (Holt, 2006) and also discusses how to estimate length, weight, area, and volume. He does an exceptional job of breaking down the process of so that even early elementary students can comprehend it. The author also effectively introduces different methods of estimation, including the "box and count" technique and clump counting. The vivid, eye-catching photographs are the highlight of the book. Each page or spread features a simple question in large, bold text, followed by a short explanation of how to achieve the answer. Hint boxes appear on almost every page. Speech bubbles emanate from critters throughout the book, adding a humorous touch. An author's note provides information on how adults use estimations as a part of their everyday lives. With an appealing layout that lends itself equally well to browsing or curriculum support, this lively book would be an excellent addition.—Maren Ostergard, King County Library System, Issaquah, WA
