In this 4-page monograph (pdf), Dr. Alex Lawson cites research to support the position that children who are encouraged to create their own algorithms make fewer errors and develop a deeper understanding of mathematics than those who are taught to memorize and apply standard algorithms without understanding. She provides examples of common errors made by students mis-applying rules and offers suggestions for helping them to understand mathematical operations. The author includes a list of references.
