With figurative (in the mind) counting in mental arithmetic, mental tension is evenly shared into both hemispheres. It allows create stable neural connections (synapses) in the brain. More synapses - more intellectually developed people. Consequently, a long time of counting exercises in the mind gives you more neural connections. The mastering of the counting in mind with the help of the “Soroban” abacus occurs due to the inclusion of different types of perception:
- logical and figurative thinking;
- visual and auditory memory;
- physical perception.
Exercises with "Soroban" abacus" develop fine motor skills of hands. Education gives the child confidence in their abilities, develops communication skills, discipline, expands the range of interests. And, of course, the child will be counting incredibly quick, which will be a pleasant addition to intellectual development.
The first success will be noticeable after the first lesson. A month later, when children perform all the tasks of the teacher, you will see incredibly bright and impressive results. To consolidate and improve them, it is advisable to complete a full course of study. The ability to quickly calculate in mind according to the “Soroban” method is an indicator of how many more capabilities can be improved:
- quick brain response;
- flexibility of thinking;
Exercises in the Soroban® program over 2 years allow you to build strong “brain muscles”. The result from the first lessons will show you that the technique works. The full course will lead to the goal - the intellectual development of the child.
Result. In the classical schools of mental arithmetic, only 25% of children reach success, at the Soroban School - more than 90%. Our children can master counting in the mind, not just those who have unique abilities.
Quality. We guarantee a 100% quality technique. Using advanced discoveries in technology and child psychology, we are constantly evolving. School "Soroban" creates new technologies for the development of intelligence.
Our developers have created an online application which can train counting in the mind a person of any age. In the Soroban School, both children of 5-11 years old and students over 55 are successful.
We offer a trial month of training so that you can experience yourself the quality of our methodology.
Teaching. All trainers of the “Soroban” school are trained in the methodological center of the school with leading trainers with extensive experience in teaching mental arithmetic. Here we regularly conduct training to improve the skills of coaches. Monitoring the quality of education allows us to maintain a high standard in all Soroban Schools.
Leadership. We were the first to create an online simulator to help speed up counting skills. We were the first to implement intellectual learning in mental arithmetic. And today, every child receives 100% individual exercises. We were the first to place an online simulator on a mobile platform. We were the first to launch a unique project for teaching people over 55 years old and got incredible results. We first invented and introduced into the process of learning the abacus, which helps to actively consolidate the material in the classroom.
Modern. School “Soroban” is the only one in the world where intellectual education is applied in the field of education. The modern program generates tasks for a specific child. We deliberately did not disperse into various areas of education for children and focus on the mental development of the child. We were the first to clearly realize that child’s intelligence can be fully developed through mental arithmetic. The education of children in the school “Soroban” significantly saves the time of parents who do not need to spend time on additional developmental activities
The ability to quickly count in life, most likely, is not useful. But this is not the purpose of studying at the Soroban School. The goal is the development of intelligence. Quick counting numbers in the mind is a tool that helps train the brain.
Children imagine the Soroban Abacus in their mind. By moving their hands they move the beads on imaginary abacus to solve the examples. In the first lessons these movements help the teachers to see whether the student counts in his mind, by including both hemispheres in the work, or mathematically, when only the left hemisphere is active. Later on, the images of the calculations are fixed in memory and the student may not need to use hands anymore.
