Enhancing mental computation teaching and learning in Year 3
Heirdsfield, Ann M. (2004) Enhancing mental computation teaching and learning in Year 3. In Australian Association for Research in Education, 29 Novemebr - 2 December, Melbourne.
The purpose of the study was to develop and investigate the effectiveness of a short instructional program to enhance mental computation strategies (addition and subtraction) in two classes of Year 3 students (approximately 8 years of age). Outcomes of the project were aimed at benefiting both the teachers and the students. The short instructional program made use of two models (100 board and empty number line) to support students’ development of mental strategies. Preinstruction and post-instruction interviews were conducted to monitor students’ progress.

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.
