As your child approaches some of the trickier topics throughout the maths curriculum, they’ll find having an understanding of estimation more and more useful. Being able to estimate is a great way of improving mental maths ability and can be useful across a large section of our maths worksheets. Our estimation worksheets should give your child the ability to check how reasonable their answers sound, more easily choose from a set of possible answers, and even help them in later life to make sure they’re not being overcharged in a shop! Our estimation worksheets can also help your child make easy work of our maths curriculum topics, including our shape worksheets, numbers worksheets, money worksheets, rounding worksheets and many more.
