Aptitud para el cálculo/Calcule la respuesta


Explanation:
Creo que se refiere a la "aptitud" para efectuar operaciones. En este sentido, sería "aptitud para las matemáticas"; o mejor aún "aptitud para el cálculo". En este sentido: "estimate the answer" sería "calcule la solución" o "Diga la solución", o quizá mejor: "Calcule la respuesta y explique cómo la ha obtenido"

sentido numérico


Explanation:
Hola. For sentido numérico, links 1 (in link 2 you'll find heaps more examples): "Boletin 13 de la SMPM... lugar en la Facultad de Educación -Centro de Formación de Profesores el Taller...Las Matemáticas en Primaria: Sentido numérico y Resolución de problemas". ...
For the rest: "calcule su respuesta y luego explique cómo hizo el cálculo". Reminds me of my darkest times at school...Cheers :-)
