Subject: Math Calculations; Grade 3

I have a Grade Three student who struggles with basic addition and
subtraction. He is using his fingers for simple operations like 5 + 2. He
is frustrated trying to memorize basic math facts. However, the same child
can perform three-figure addition in his head. This includes carrying
numbers. He also glanced at the window blinds and asked, "What's 2 times
60?" He'd calculated the number of holes in the slats of the window blinds.

What could explain this situation?
