Most of the mathematics that we learn in school is taught to us on paper with the expectation that we will solve problems on paper. But there is joy and lifelong value in being able to do mathematics in your head. In school, learning how to do math in your head quickly and accurately can be empowering. In this course, you will learn to solve many problems using multiple strategies that reinforce number sense, which can be helpful in all mathematics courses. Success at doing mental calculation and estimation can also lead to improvement on several standardized tests. We encounter numbers on a daily basis outside of school, including many situations in which it is just not practical to pull out a calculator, from buying groceries to reading the newspaper to negotiating a car payment. And as we get older, research has shown that it is important to find activities that keep our minds active and sharp.

Not only does mental math sharpen the mind, but it can also be a lot of fun. Our classes (2) will focus on the nuts and bolts of mental math: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Often, we will see that there is more than one way to solve a problem, and we will motivate many of the problems with real-world applications.
