Can you carry out mental maths without counting?

Individuals tend to count on their fingers due to their inability to hold or calculate numbers as a dysfunction in this cognitive area impairs the ability to do basic mathematics in your head.

Students may also initially hide their difficulty in this area by ‘rope learning’ their tables but without a basic understanding of calculations once the complexity of maths increases to include fractions, algebra, and number sequences.
