## Some of the 330 modules available in the educational software products. Many of the modules allow you to vary the number sets used to further change difficulty levels. Download a 21 day free trial version. Or better still, purchase this educational software today.

Purpose

The student is required to use his judgement and estimation to answer questions. This also requires the student to read and interpret a sentence to extract out the appropriate mathematical equation.

Functionality

One of three question types is posed to the student with a sum that is relatively difficult to get the correct answer without proper arithmetic. Four alternative estimate answers are provided and the student needs to pick the closest answer.

Numbers being used are random but gravitate to base 10 or 100 boundaries to make it the approximation easier.

All estimate answers are rounded a factor of 10 to avoid exact matches.

An ‘Answer Box’ is provided for the student to place the number that represents the best estimate.

Keys

The [Enter] key automatically proceeds to the next question.
