Title: PhET: Estimation Game
Url: http://phet.colorado.edu/sims/estimation/estimation_en.html
Publisher: University of Colorado, Boulder
Description: This simulation provides practice on estimation of relative sizes. The user must estimate the relative lengths, areas, or volumes of objects. This activity builds student abilities to understand ratios and the scaling of sizes in different dimensions. It also includes a strategy section that teaches students how to visualize relative areas and volumes.
