Mental arithmetic is no longer just about doing fast sums in your head. It's a programme for children and adults alike that helps to develop the brain in a balanced way.
Mental arithmetic is a cutting-edge way to develop preschool and school-aged children’s creative, cognitive and intellectual skills, helping them to reach their full potential.
SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH has shown that a child’s brain undergoes its most intense development between the ages of 4 and 12. The skills obtained at this age are easy to master and remain for many years.
It is well-known that studying new things stimulates the brain's functioning and development. The more we give our brain a workout, the more actively the neurones that connect the left and right hemispheres of the brain work (and the more quickly they are formed in children). As a result, what once seemed hard or even impossible becomes simple and understandable.
At the beginning of the mental arithmetic course an abacus (or counting frame) is used. Later on, children will mentally visualise an abacus to do calculations in their head. Lessons take place once a week, and are three hours long, plus 15 minutes of homework every day.
We are one of the first companies to bring mental arithmetic to Europe, and we have combined our quick mental maths programme with the following aspects from our Brain Fitness exercises:
• Memory exercises: visual and auditory.
• Attention exercises: focus, concentration, capacity and stability.
• Exercises in logic and thinking outside the box.
• Exercises encouraging communication between the two sides of the brain.
• Increased motivation. Both high-fliers and children who find learning difficult enjoy studying with us. Taking part in our lessons increases children's love of learning.
The mental arithmetic method taught in our centres complies with international standards.
We are constantly tweaking the programme to ensure it remains interesting to new generations of students and parents.
Developing children’s intellectual capability is a simple way to provide a solid base for educational success and creative development.
