Mental computation: Refining the cognitive frameworks

By Ann M. Heirdsfield

Abstract

This paper reports on a study of Year 3 and 4 students’ addition and subtraction mental computation. The purpose of the study was to investigate the cognitive aspects of the mental computation conceptual frameworks that the author formulated from a study of Year 3 students who were accurate in their mental computation. These frameworks had accounted for differing levels of flexibility in mental computation
