IntroductionThis document is a complement to the Grade 10 Essential Mathematicscurriculum and is intended to help students develop strategies that allowthem to perform mental calculations.Why Mental Mathematics?Mental mathematics and estimation is one of the seven processes of themathematics curriculum.“Mental mathematics is a combination of cognitive strategies that enhanceflexible thinking and number sense. It involves using strategies to performmental calculations.Mental mathematics enables students to determine answers without paperand pencil. It improves computational fluency by developing efficiency,accuracy, and flexibility in reasoning and calculating” (Manitoba Education andAdvanced Learning, p. 9).It is used by individuals in their daily lives at home and at work. Mentalcalculation requires students to call on their knowledge of numbers andmathematical operations. It not only calls on memory but helps improve it aswell.Mental calculation is at the root of the estimation process. It allows us todetermine whether results obtained with a calculator are reasonable.“Estimation is used for determining approximate values or quantities,usually by referring to benchmarks or referents, or for determining thereasonableness of calculated values. Estimation is also used to makemathematical judgments and to develop useful, efficient strategies for dealingwith situations in daily life” (Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning, p. 9).Mental calculation is an important way of developing number sense andacquiring a better understanding of place value and mathematical operations.Students who have experience with mental math develop the ability to workwith numbers. Mental calculation can be used to prepare for written workby providing an approximate answer to a problem. Using certain mentalcalculation strategies can eliminate some steps in written calculations andhelp simplify the process. In short, mental calculation skills are at the heart ofnumeracy.Introduction3
Mental calculation is used almost daily in life. We often have to do quickmental calculations at times when we do not have paper, a pencil, or acalculator handy. Mental calculation is therefore a very practical skill.Teachers should provide opportunities for their students to use mental mathand estimation on a daily basis. They should encourage their students to findexamples of the usefulness of mental calculation in their lives, such as whenshopping, doing home renovations, estimating mileage, or working at theirjobs.StrategiesTeachers should promote a variety of mental mathematics strategies. Theyare encouraged to make students aware of the strategies described in theStrategies section of this document. The strategies that are most effectivefor mental calculation are often not the same strategies that are mosteffective for written calculation. Most students are able to develop strongmental calculation techniques, but often need help in doing so. Studentsmay discover and use some mental calculation techniques by themselvesbut need to be taught other techniques to increase their mental calculationeffectiveness. Regular mental calculation activities should be included in allmathematics curricula at all grade levels.Document FeaturesThe document includes three main sections: this introduction, a sectiondescribing strategies, and a series of mental mathematics questions organizedby units.The teacher will find mental mathematics questions relating to a specific unitof Grade 10 Essential Mathematics as written in Grades 9 to 12 Mathematics:Manitoba Curriculum Framework of Outcomes. This document follows the orderof units as given in Grade 10 Essential Mathematics: A Course for IndependentStudy. The Mental Math: Grade 10 Essential Mathematics document consists ofeight (8) units:Unit4Number of PagesA: Gross Pay, Time Cards, and Percents8B: Net Pay10C: Measurement11D: Geometry9E: Angles and Parallel and Perpendicular Lines10F: Consumer Decisions8G: Trigonometry9H: Transformations7Mental Math: Grade 10 Essential Mathematics
The units may be taught in a different order as determined by the teacher.Every unit consists of several pages of mental math questions. Each page hasquestions that correspond to the Brain Power questions found in the learningactivities of the Independent Study Option (ISO) course.The number of individual mental math pages for each unit corresponds to thenumber of learning activities given for the unit in the ISO course. The unitof study is identified on each page. The questions on each page are dividedinto three different categories: five (5) general or review questions; three (3)questions related to the unit of study; and two (2) blanks for teachers to inserttheir own questions.The answers to the questions are provided in the column on the extremeright-hand side of each page. Sometimes students are asked to provide theone right answer and at other times they are to provide an estimate where arange of values would be correct.Teachers may want to prepare additional questions to better meet the needs oftheir students. A section at the bottom of each page entitled Other Questionshas been set aside for this purpose. A blank template is also provided in asection titled Reproducible Sheets. Teachers may use it to prepare additionalquestion sheets.A file in Word format is available in the Mathematics Group on theMAPLE (Manitoba Professional Learning Environment) site at www.maple4teachers.ca . The Word file does not contain the Strategiessection of this document but it does contain the section with the MentalMath Questions by Unit. It is provided to enable teachers to add or modifyquestions to suit the needs of their students.Immediately following this introduction is a section describing mentalcalculation strategies along with examples. Some students may already havean inventory of strategies that they can apply; others may not. Teachers canuse the strategies information given in this document to help students expandtheir strategy knowledge.Introduction5
MethodologyGiven their usefulness, mental calculation exercises should be short and donefrequently.They should be short because they require sustained concentration. Forexample, the first five minutes or so of math class could be devoted to mentalcalculation exercises. This practice would also serve as a warm-up to theday’s lesson. In addition, although mental calculation should be done withina certain period of time, it is preferable not to emphasize speed. Althoughspeed is a factor, it is not a primary goal. It is obviously important to ensurethat time spent on mental mathematics activities does not infringe on thetime needed for instruction and other learning activities.Establishing routines in the classroom also encourages students to get to workquickly at the beginning of each class. Teachers could establish a process suchas the following:QQQQQQQQQQAs soon as students arrive at the beginning of the class, they can take out asheet of paper and write down the numbers 1 to 10 if there are 10 questions.The teacher can project a mental math page, present questions orally, ordistribute a page with written questions.The students are given time to answer the questions.If students are unable to find an answer to a specific question, they couldleave an empty space on that question and go on to the next question. Thegoal is accuracy and the development of a bank of effective strategies.The teacher should, on occasion, spend time discussing various strategiesused by the students for one or more of the questions.To ensure students gain confidence with a new strategy, it is important thatthey are given adequate opportunity to practice it. It is up to the teacher toprovide an adequate number of exercises or problems to ensure that studentsare able to use the new strategies.6Mental Math: Grade 10 Essential Mathematics
AssessmentPrimarily, mental calculation exercises are used as assessment for learning.Mental calculation exercises should be done in a classroom environment inwhich students feel comfortable taking risks without being penalized whenthey make mistakes. However, teachers should ask students to do a selfevaluation by identifying the questions they had the most difficulty with orthose they did not answer correctly. Periodically, teachers may choose to usethe mental mathematics questions as assessment of learning by asking themto explain the strategy they used for a specific question or questions.Mental calculation can allow students an opportunity to develop a betterunderstanding of some mathematical concepts. Consequently, mentalcalculation activities should include periods for thought and discussion.During these periods, the teacher should encourage students toQQQQQQsuggest a variety of possible correct solutions to the same problemexplain the different methods used to come to the correct answer and theireffectivenessexplain the thought process that led to an incorrect answerThis type of discussion is very important in learning mental calculationstrategies, because it is an effective way for students to present their thinking.Questioning, reflecting, and discussing, which are integral to the activitiesof mental calculation, are excellent ways of communicating mathematicalideas. This communication requires that students be clear and concise whenexplaining their thinking to others. It is often when students describe thestrategy they used to solve questions that other students discover a newtechnique. These exchanges about the strategies as well as the results willallow the teacher to identify the difficulties encountered by some students.Subsequently, the teacher can help students discover new, relevant, useful,and important strategies.Enjoy the mental mathematics experience!Introduction7
