COMPUTATION STRATEGIES Presentation for Parents March 2013 Flexible Thinking There are many ways to solve problems. The more ways we solve a problem, the deeper our understanding of the mathematics. When we ask "How would you do that?" or "Can you show me another way?" we are helping children understand math better. Encourage children to use what they know to solve problems. Traditional algorithms involving lining up columns rely heavily on memorizing procedures and can work against developing number sense. 85% of all calculations we do involve mental math. Addition and Subtraction Facts Grades 1, 2 and 3 Students will learn mental mathematics strategies to determine basic addition and related subtraction facts to 18.
