Soroban users exercise their memory recall with every problem they solve. They become well-exercised in recalling math rules,interim sums and products, and in tracking where they are in the solution process.
The student who masters arithmetic on the soroban has a definite advantage when compared to traditionally instructed students.They will gain competence with large numbers and complex calculations quickly.
The soroban imposes a mental discipline requiring: concentration, focus and attention. You can't let your mind wander while you are doing abacus calculations. The abacus requires attention in listening, and in translating numbers into actions.
we all know physical exercise is important to keeping our bodies fit.
But how important is physical exercise to your brain?
SMART Academy Mental Arithmetic is a proven unique program for children in the field of numerical computational skills in Arithmetic. This enhances the children's learning ability and enables them to do calculations mentally without the aid of any external tools like calculator, soroban, paper pen etc. Children are able to calculate with speed and accuracy using their own mental power. The program is imparted by certified and qualified teachers who aim to provide a fun filled and interactive learning environment.
Soroban Mental Arithmetic is an internationally recognized program operating in 27 different countries including USA, Australia, Spain, Canada, Japan, Singapore, China and South Korea; more than 5 million students got amazing benefits out of it since its inception.A research conducted of late by Japanese Medical Research team revealed that Soroban education immensely helps children in brain development and enhance performances in every school subject.
The student who masters arithmetic on the soroban has a definite advantage when compared to traditionally instructed students. For starters, they will have a concrete, rather than abstract sense of numbers and their relationships. They will have a firm understanding of the decimal system and place-value. They will gain competence with large numbers and complex calculations quickly and in most cases far out-perform their traditionally-instructed peers! With practice and proper tutoring, students as young as five-years-old, can add and subtract multi-digit sums.
