Understanding how knowledge is developed allows teachers to shape the methodological delivery of their subject content to match the theoretical frameworks, underpinning how knowledge is developed. Mathematics education theories about learning of numbers have strongly been influenced by the work of Piaget (e. g., Piaget 1952). mental computation were limited, with most subjects using frequently a mental version of a learned
