Estimation and Rounding off are two significant math concepts that offer easy tactics to approximate whole numbers and simplify complex math expressions. These two concepts go hand-in-hand to help students perform approximations in their daily life like money calculations, time and distance calculations.
Rounding off a number is a mathematical practice of making the number easier for further calculations. This concept works by adjusting the numbers in the digits place and keeping its original value intact.
Estimating a number means a form of approximation but in an extensive form. It helps to determine the accurate answer, choosing from a group of nearest possible answers.
