What is Mental Math?

Defining Mental Math



Mental math: Calculations that are done in a student's head without the guidance of pencil and paper, calculators or other aids. Mental math is often used as a way to calculate and estimate quickly, using math facts that a student has committed to memory, such as multiplication, division or doubles facts.
