#EduRead - 5/28/2014 - Mental Mathematics Beyond Middle School

Welcome again to #EduRead - the weekly twitter chat focused on an educational article.

This Week's Article:
This week's article is "Mental Mathematics Beyond Middle School". I'm really excited to chat about this article because this is a topic that has come up in twitter chats in the past, especially when discussing multiplication facts, etc. We've all had frustrations with our students not recalling their elementary arithmetic skills or putting things like 10x35 in their calculators. How can we develop these mental math skills in our secondary (and post-secondary) math students?
