Mental Arithmetic / Mental Math

with Olesya Milano


What is it? This is learning how to quickly count in your head using the abacus (Japanese abacus). You may have seen or heard how some children solve multi-valued examples in their minds in seconds and at the same time read, squat, or jump. If you think that only geniuses are capable of this, we assure you that this is not so! Every child who attends this class master this kind of quick counting. But this is not the main thing!

The main thing is the simultaneous development of both hemispheres of the brain. Children learn to count on an abacus by moving the bones. Then they imagine these abacus in their imagination and move the bones in their imagination. And then the right hemisphere begins to work. 

Everyone who takes a mental arithmetic course begins to do better at school, do homework on their own, and learn poetry quickly. Why? Because mental arithmetic develops children's memory, concentration, speed of perception, and processing of information. Skills that are so needed in the modern world.
