Find out how your child can learn how to do complex maths calculations without relying on a calculator.
As parents we know the importance of doing well in maths not just to excel in school, but also to succeed in various other subjects and important life skills.
However, we also know that some children struggle with mathematical concepts. As such, they may fall behind in some areas, causing both themselves and their parents quite a bit of stress.
With technology easily available, kids these days may become too dependent on gadgets like calculators — or even apps — when doing maths calculations. This may hamper brain development and critical thinking.
Needless to say, having a maths teaching method that reduces stress in children will help them learn better and promote the development of their left and right brain (and other important mental abilities).
It should also bring relief for parents who want to see their children excel in their school work.
Crestar Learning Centre’s Abacus and Mental Arithmetic programme has been designed to help children improve their maths skills with ease.
What is Abacus and Mental Arithmetic?
Crestar’s Mental Arithmetic programme equips your child with techniques for complicated mental calculation, sharpening your child’s memory and strengthening concentration discipline.
This method is based on the principles of abacus calculation.
The abacus is a calculating tool that is used in teaching numbers and arithmetic. With practice, children are trained to register a mental abacus to help them perform complex calculations with precision.
4560 x 3572 =?
Do you think you would be able to answer the above question in your head, in a matter of a few seconds?
Well, if your child has Abacus and Mental Arithmetic skills you can be sure that they will be able to calculate quickly and give the correct answer.
In the Crestar classroom, your child will be guided on how to use the abacus to do calculations for up to 10 digits, and then taught to master the method mentally.
Over time, your child will be able to mentally solve difficult mathematical questions.
