The following PDFs exemplify BRW’s calculation policy. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ method – these are working documents that detail just some of the calculation methods followed in school. Children are encouraged to use a range of methods that explore number and calculations and that work successfully for them.

Eventually, with time and practice, children should become ‘fluent’ in their calculations, being able to identify the most efficient methods for a range of number sentences.
