Elementary School Students' Mental Computation Proficiencies
Varol, Filiz; Farran, Dale
Early Childhood Education Journal, v35 n1 p89-94 Aug 2007
Mental computation helps children understand how numbers work, how to make decisions about procedures, and how to create different strategies to solve math problems. Although researchers agree on the importance of mental computation skills, they debate how to help students develop these skills. The present study explored the existing literature in order to identify key points that are related to students' use of different mental calculation strategies in a variety of settings and their conceptual understanding of those strategies.
