These errors are common in children learning arithmetic, but still occur surprisingly frequently in adults. Given the effort put into the formal teaching of arithmetic, the high level of errors suggests that there is something about the information processes needed for arithmetic that do not match well with the capabilities of our brains. As Marr commented “I have no doubt that when we do mental arithmetic we are doing something well, but it is not arithmetic” [4]. Many different strategies may be used to perform the same manipulation including counting and memorisation of a fact portfolio.

With very limited exceptions current computer systems do not learn. In contrast with such electronic systems brains are very good at defining and finding patterns and creating and recalling relevant associations between different objects and situations. Sometimes these pattern finding and association creating capabilities are misleading, such as when we see faces in clouds or in groups of rocks on the surface of Mars, or associate numbers like 13 with unpleasant situations. Unlike our brains, electronic systems can have permanent, unchanging, reliable memories: the picture stored in the computer will look exactly the same in all details several years in the future.
