WHAT IS MENTAL ARITHMETIC?

Mental Arithmetic is a tested way of developing a child’s academic abilities and creative thinking in a balanced way, allowing them to reach their full intellectual potential. It’s more than learning how to count fast. Mental arithmetic leads to:

• A powerful visual and auditory memory
• Increased concentration
• Resourcefulness
• Innovative problem-solving methods
• Improved thought processes

At the beginning of the course, an abacus is used to learn the counting techniques. Later, children learn to do calculations in their head by forming a mental image of a number on the abacus and are able to do all mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) with any numbers in mind.
