Elementary arithmetic is the most basic kind of mathematics: it concerns the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Most people learn elementary arithmetic during their early education.

Elementary arithmetic starts with the natural numbers and the Arabic numerals used to represent them. It requires the memorization of addition tables and multiplication tables for adding and multiplying pairs of digits. Knowing these tables, a person can perform certain well-known procedures for adding and multiplying natural numbers. Other algorithms are used for subtraction and division. Elementary arithmetic then moves on to fractions, decimals, percents and negative numbers.

Although there is certainly a place for learning patterns in elementary math, most basic facts should be memorized. To that end, we offer math drill materials (software, drill books and flashcards). Beyond that, story problems help students apply these concepts to real life and help with mathematical reasoning
