The Frances More System
A Moment with Mathematics by Philip Tomlinson
Frances More of South Canterbury, now becoming known throughout New Zealand for her revolutionary arithmetic teaching has made a real contribution to mathematics' education.
I attended her recent lecture and was impressed with her multi sensory system. It is simple to use. Our lesson objective, learning the 17 times table, was achieved at an astonishing speed.
The first key to mastering mathematics is in memorising every-day additions, subtractions, multiplications and also divisions. Philosophical discussions about "understanding number," at the expense of ensuring instantaneous recall of basic facts, is a misplaced aspiration. We proved this 20 - 30 odd years ago experimenting with "New Maths." Although providing a fabric of sophisticated jargon it was an untimely diversion from essential groundwork.
The beautifully neat and transparently simple strategy developed by Frances More closely parallels well proven memory training methods, has been developed for specific mental agility with numbers and can be used effectively in other areas as such as spelling and geography.
The argument that no single system offers everything is ultimately true but this system is really worth trying and I hope that our schools will add her strategy to their tool kits for learning the vital nuts and bolts of mathematics.
