'Bestimation': Using basic calculators in the numeracy classroom
'Bestimation': Using basic calculators in the numeracy classroom
This is one of several linked publications arising from the five Effective Practice Studies carried out by the NRDC. This report looks at how the imaginative use of calculators can enhance teaching and learning in adult numeracy classes. It suggests a range of activities to develop estimation and problem-solving skills, providing learners with opportunities for self-directed and self-paced learning.
