Lack of Automaticity in the Basic Addition Facts as a Characteristic of Arithmetic Learning Problems and Instructional Needs.
Cumming, J. Joy; Elkins, John
Mathematical Cognition, v5 n2 p149-80 1999
Examines 109 children from grades 3 through 6 for computational facility and the relationship between automaticity, or efficient processing of addition facts, and success in more complex tasks. Indicates that most errors on the multidigit sums were due to fact inaccuracy, not algorithmic errors. Discusses instructional implications for students who have problems learning basic arithmetic.
