it was amazing
bookshelves: math, informational, noticing

This book is a great read to provide students with the concept of estimation. Examples are provided with vivid illustrations of an image that will overwhelm the reader, and it includes strategies on how to go about estimation through the use of blocks or patterns. At the bottom of the page, the author provides a hint box, with different hints on noticing the picture and attempting to estimate correctly.

Book is written as an informational piece. Noticing can be a technique taught by the educator to clearly incorporate how to analyze a picture in order to help the reader correctly estimate and understand estimating.
