The 2013 elementary curriculum, 2017 revision suggests that estimated learning in class VI, hereinafter referred to as "estimation", is still limited to rounding activities. From the results of this study it was found that (1) in general, students have not been able to develop a certain approximate calculation, (2) students find it difficult to release their procedural knowledge before estimating calculations, because they are accustomed to proper calculations, (3) students in studying and exploring patterns of estimating arithmetic, need to be done in implementing the introduction of benchmarks to improve numeracy estimation skills. Whereas the variety to increase arithmetic estimation includes learning numeracy estimates related to whole numbers, fractions, and decimal numbers. Based on the results of the study, it was suggested to the math teacher to always ask students to estimate before calculating.
