Mental computation: Refining the cognitive frameworks

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.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
