Mental Arithmetic - Senior


The Concept

Abacus essentially teaches the children to become skilled in rapid mental mathematics with the help of the Abacus beads where the children use the single hand to manipulate beads initially. This is done through memorizing a visual through the Abacus.

This concept of thinking in picture enables children to achieve high level of speed, efficiency, accuracy, concentration and increase in memory power.

For a long past, our education system has been concentrating in the development of left brain such as reading, writing, calculating, analyzing, logic and theoretical academic. But there should be some training for the right brain such as music, mental arithmetic, arts & handicrafts.

In this highly competitive world, what we seek is not merely the education of the left-brain but the development of the cerebrum as a whole. The learning Abacus mental arithmetic accelerates the development of brain.

Is whole brain development Possible?
Generally human beings use only 2-3% of their brainpower during their life span.
That proves that still more than 97% of the brain remains unutilized. That means there is a potential for development, and ofcourse development is possible since there is potential.
This gives rise to our next question that if it is possible when?
When is this possible?
Research has shown over a period of time that the brain development activities are mostly possible up to the age of 13 years, beyond this age there are hardly 10% chances of brain development. The age 16 to 20 is the age when the brain matures out and gives it a definite shape and pattern.
Going by the dictates of research it has been proved that whole brain development is possible from the age of 3-16 years in India since the child starts to recognize the numbers from 0 to 9 at the age of four as per the education system prevalent with us.
How is it Possible?
You would agree with us that the more you use your organs/parts of the body the more it responds, there by it becomes more efficient of that particular organ.
Why Mental Arithmetic?
Why only, mental arithmetic is the best suited medium, for brain development?
Mental arithmetic is an age old technique and it has been widely stated that the best exercise for the development of brain is arithmetic and hence mental arithmetic. This technique has been accepted, the world over and is actively being used in over 30 countries around the globe.
It is also observed that when children do fast calculations, using Aloha methodology through their mind, they need to use their imagination, memory, analysis, logic, creativity, listening skills, vision etc. because, both part of their brain gets exercised, therefore co-ordination between them also increases.
This way when the mind gets constant exercise, the mental power of the child gets a boost, just like the equipment at the gym is a medium for body building. So also for brain development, mental arithmetic is a proven medium. After the muscles are developed, the stored energy can be used as desired, similarly thru mental arithmetic, the brain gets developed and the enhancements so acquired can be used as and when required.
ALOHA is not a class for teaching mental arithmetic but its aim is to bring around complete brain development. Mental math’s is an added advantage garnered through the whole exercise. Initially Mental arithmetic is taught with the help of an ABACUS.
What is an ABACUS?
Abacus is a tool invented by the Salamis, then labeled by Mesopotamians, improved as a mathematical tool by Greek scholar Tetramachus, and used in China for more than 2000 years as a mathematical tool. Abacus is termed as the father of computers.
Abacus is being used in our curriculum for learning the basics of mental arithmetic, right and left brain development and to increase their co-ordination.
WHAT IS ALOHA MENTAL ARITHMETIC ?
ALOHA Mental Arithmetic is a form of training which will enhance a child’s ability to calculate without the aid of any instrument such as paper, pen, calculator or abacus, after initial abacus training. The child will be able to calculate with speed and accuracy using his/her own mental power. ALOHA Mental Arithmetic is fun filled learning.
What is ALOHA’s Contribution?
ALOHA is a mental development program based on mental arithmetic system. It starts with the use of an abacus and soon the child learns to do calculations in his mind itself without a physical abacus. This training will enhance a child's ability to do calculation without the aid of any instrument such as the calculator, abacus etc. The child will be able to calculate with speed and accuracy using his own mental power and can surpass the speed of even a calculator.
Won’t this create more burden on the child?
There is no extra burden on the child during the training through ALOHA, but the fact is that the brain gets developed and hence the regular studies also become easier. In fact ALOHA is not an educational institute, but it is a brain development center. World over, students are undergoing ALOHA mental arithmetic training without any burden and get knowledge combined with fun and play.
Like other training programs, ALOHA also has books and syllabus but the whole training program is easy and burden less. The child will start taking interest in themselves which is the primary motive of any ALOHA center.
At the start, the child is taught how to use an Abacus – a beaded instrument used for the purpose of calculation. Later on, the child is not dependent on the Abacus to do the calculations.
ALOHA center presents a friendly and good atmosphere, which motivates the child to come to our center to learn.
