## Importance of Rounding and Estimation Activities

Rounding and estimation are important math skills that students continue to use throughout their lives. Rounding numbers, fractions and decimals provide figures that are easier to work with than the original numbers. In everyday life, these figures help facilitate quick math calculations and give people a general idea of what to expect in a project, a transaction or an event. Students also use rounded figures for mental math operations, and to cross check answers. Using rounded or approximate figures for calculations is called estimation. Both rounding and estimation have many important practical purposes. Help your kids master the art of rounding and estimation with JumpStart’s free rounding and estimation activities.
