Consider the value of Mental Arithmetic.

"It allows us to process numbers quickly.
It helps us with estimation.

More than this, mental arithmetic helps us with our response to a variety of situations.

In the Maths classroom, for example, our mental agility with numbers affects how quickly we work on Mathematical concepts. This is the same for all disciplines that require numeracy.

Mental arithmetic is a basic life skill."
