For a child to do well in school math, it is important to develop the ability to calculate. Learning Abacus-Mental Arithmetic can quickly develop that ability to do well in math.
According to Professor Huang Guo Rong, children who knows mental arithmetic achieve far better results than other students in school math. Especially in the area of better understanding of the mathematical concepts, calculating abilities, mathematical problem solving skills, mathematical performance and IQ results.
Students with one to two years of mental arithmetic training are found to possess a better grasp of mathematical concepts, calculation and are more efficient in solving mathematical problems.
Students with more than two years training shows even better results. This indicates that the longer and deeper a child is exposed to mental arithmetic training the better will be his mathematical abilities.
