Math Calculation is the ability to count, group objects, and compute simple math facts and operations.

Children with good math calculation skills:

  • Count to 10
  • Have one-to-one correspondence
  • Recognize math numbers and symbols
  • Group objects
  • Compute simple calculations and operations with manipulatives
  • See a small amount of objects and know how many there are without counting (e.g., the number you roll on a six sided dice).

Characteristics of a math disorder include problems learning to count, recognizing math numbers, sequencing and patterning objects, learning one-to-one correspondence, manipulating numbers using mathematical operations.

How the Well Screening can help

Subtest 6: Calculation measures the ability to identify numbers, count, make one-to-one correspondences, compute simple math facts, compute math facts beyond age expectations, and “see” a small number of objects and know how many there are without counting (i.e., the ability to subitize). The child is shown numbers to name, objects to count, and simple and complex math computations to solve. Example: How many seashells are there?
