• Estimation

### Description

Explore size estimation in one, two and three dimensions! Multiple levels of difficulty allow for progressive skill improvement.

### Sample Learning Goals

• Estimating Length: guess the number of small line segments that can fit into a longer line segment.
• Estimating Area: guess the number of flat square or circles that can fit into a larger flat square or circle.
• Estimating Volume: guess the number of cubes or spheres that can fit into a larger cube or sphere.
