A humorous anecdote regarding mental math appears in an article in The Parents’ Review. In it, the teacher relays how she “heard of one house where the parents, whose children had become very keen on the subject, positively had to forbid them setting arithmetical problems for their elders, or themselves at meal times; no doubt this was out of a very right and proper consideration for the digestive organs.”*

If you’re interested in learning more about mental math, Sonya Shafer and I sat down to discuss all its benefits in “Mental Math in the Charlotte Mason Math Lesson” — available in video, podcast, or article format here.
