When did mental arithmetic appear and how it works
This is a unique technique that was created in China over 5 thousand years ago.
In Japan, mental arithmetic, a compulsory subject, is a starting point of school education.
Mental arithmetic is a technique that teaches to do fast calculations in mind. In the course of mental calculations, two hemispheres of our brain begin to work, and children simultaneously develop creative and logical thinking.
Scientifically proven! Relevant studies were made in China in 2002, as also in India and the UK. As a result of systematic practice, children significantly improved their performance not only in mathematics, but also in other disciplines. Moreover, due to the course of mental arithmetic, all children improved visual, auditory memory and attention.
