Finger Mathematics for EMR Children.
Ogletree, Earl J.; Chavez, Maria
An approach to teaching mildly retarded children math skills using finger calculation is discussed. Drills progress from using one to two hands and doing multiplication and division. The appropriateness of finger calculation with children in the sensory motor and preoperational stages of development is noted, and the approach's ability to enhance arithmetical understanding and skill development is commented upon. Findings of three studies are cited to illustrate the use of the finger math system. (CL)
