Let's Teach Mental Algorithms for Addition and Subtraction.
Musser, Gary L.
Arithmetic Teacher, v29 n8 p40-42 Apr 1982
Two mental algorithms, one for addition and one for subtraction, are described. It is felt such algorithms should be taught explicitly. The usual process taught for paper and pencil is seen to inhibit mental arithmetic, and a need to include mental algorithms in the regular mathematics curriculum is promoted. (MP)
