- Practicing mental math daily and becoming comfortable with basic arithmetic without a calculator is crucial for success.
- The module will cover mental math strategies and the concept of playing with math to recognize patterns and develop number sense.
- Engaging with numbers in everyday life, such as calculating tips or estimating areas, is recommended to improve mental math skills.
