Mental Computation Strategies for Addition: There's More than One Way to Skin a Cat
Chesney, Marlene
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v18 n1 p36-40 2013
Marlene Chesney describes a piece of research where the participants were asked to complete a calculation, 16 + 8, and then asked to describe how they solved it. The diversity of invented strategies will be of interest to teachers along with the recommendations that are made. So "how do 'you' solve 16 + 8?"
