Counting System for Adding and Subtracting Using the Basic Facts.
Mackall, Philip L.
A math teacher describes an approach to help special education students solve addition and subtraction problems through a system involving finger counting. The systems for subtraction and addition solve the problem faced by students unable to memorize facts and unable to use their fingers when numbers exceeded five. (Illustrations of the approach are given, with sample problems and activities appended.) (CL)
