Abstract

Much is known about mental strategies and how children use them. Evidence suggests that discussion should play a key part in the development of mental strategies and yet many mental computation sessions are still characterised by the traditional ten or twenty quick question approach. This paper reviews what is known about mental strategies, examines why a certain level of inertia exists and suggests a way forward.
