What is mental arithmetic
Abakus courses in Bratislava
Have you heard of Carl Friedrich Gauss? He became known as the Prince of Mathematics. As a child he managed to calculate the sum of all the numbers from 1 to 100 in seconds. So what did he do with his talent?
Gauss left behind fundamental knowledge in almost all the basic fields of mathematics. Not to mention astronomy, geodesy and mechanics.
Not for most children. The same applies to learning more than one foreign language, having a good memory or being attentive to detail. The traditional education system is targeted primarily at developing the left side of the brain, which is enough for standard levels of logical thinking.
If you want to release your child’s full potential, take a look at this new, progressive teaching method. It is based on technology that is over 2500 years old.
5 million prodigies in 56 countries (from the USA and Canada to Japan and Australia) study using this method. We’re talking about mental arithmetic.
The tool that underpins the lessons is the abacus, known as the “suanpan” in China, and the “soroban” in Japan.
Its use causes both sides of a child’s brain to develop. At first children use an abacus, then special cards, and then something magical happens: they can do the calculations in their head, just imagining the abacus in front of them. Consider the amount of imagination and mental processing required for that!
You’ll be able to throw away your calculator - our training will teach your child to do all mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) with any numbers.
