UNIT 6 CALCULATING IN MATHEMATICS
Pages 15

This Unit will help participants to establish views about the nature of numerical calculation and to recognize the relative importance of the various aspects of this work.

Inevitably, calculating in mathematics permeates throughout the Units. Unit 3, for example, considers the need to be able to perform arithmetical calculations as part of the process of applying mathematics. Unit 5 provides opportunities to look specifically at children’s errors in computation.
