Computation and Children's Literature

This is a sample chapter from Picture Book Math an eBook by Carol Otis Hurst and Rebecca Otis ( More Information at http://www.carolhurst.com/products/pbmcd.html ) Current research seems to show that solid computation skills come, not so much from repeated drills of methods taught by the teacher, but from the students' ability to create their own methods of computation. This creates a deeper understanding of the process of computation itself. Flexibility and the ability to recognize more than one way of completing the task actually creates a stronger math sense and stronger skill in manipulating numbers. In this chapter on computation, we are also including estimation because it is so closely intertwined with computation.
