Estimating Quantities

NUMBERS AND OPERATIONS

FIRST GRADE

Estimating a quantity involves finding the result of a set or operation in an approximate way.

As children improve their basic counting and calculating skills, their mathematical ability to estimate also improves.

The estimates or approximations are worked on in the classroom throughout the Preschool Education (3, 4 and 5 years) and, finally, it is checked whether they have been properly learned at the beginning of Elementary or Primary Education.

Make quantity estimates with natural numbers: All - None

FIRST GRADE
ALL - NONE

We present you some worksheets ready to download and print where you have to compare two sets, visually discriminate and color in which are "all" elements and in which there are "none".

Make quantity estimates with natural numbers: Any / Some - None

FIRST GRADE
some - none

We show you some activities in PDF format in which you must compare two sets, relate them and interpret which one represents the estimate "any" or "some" and which "none".

Make quantity estimates with natural numbers: Many - Few

FIRST GRADE
FEW - MANY

We provide you with printable exercises where you will learn to compare two sets of elements and distinguish which symbolizes the concept "many" and which "few".

Make quantity estimates with natural numbers: One - Several

FIRST GRADE
SEVERAL - ONE

We present you some worksheets with funny characters in which you have to recognize and identify the quantities "one" (one unit) and "several" (more than one unit).

Recognize by graphic representation: Whole - Half

FIRST GRADE

We show you some activities in PDF format where compare two elements indicating which one manifests the quality "whole" (as a complete unit) and which one the quality "half" (split an initial quantity in two equal parts).
