What is ecclesiastical subtraction

How children add and subtract

Maria Fast uses one-on-one interviews to investigate how schoolchildren solve additions and subtractions from the second to the fourth grade. Their results show clear interindividual differences in the development processes and give rise to the assumption that schoolchildren have a certain understanding of numbers and the associated solution methods that they have maintained over the years.
