These needs occur much less frequently than they used to. The ‘standard written methods’ were devised to enable clerks, who had no other aids to calculation, to carry out calculations efficiently. ‘Efficiency’ involved writing down as little as possible, while still leaving the intermediate calculations apparent and hence available for subsequent checking. Today, the standard written methods are used remarkably little in the adult world. This may be because they are so difficult to learn and remember, but it is more likely because they are seldom the most appropriate to use.
