]]>I was talking to my husband about it and he said, “Rounding is a Subset of Estimation. You round one number but estimation usually involves more than one number. Like if you’re estimating the number of people in a room you need to count something (a table or row) then you might round that number and multiply to get your estimate.”

I loved reading your thoughts on the differences, it is hard to define! When I saw your example of 26/5 I thought “I’d round 26 to 25”, I didn’t think of rounding to either 20 or30. So my rounded answer was the same as my estimated answer!
