Creative minds India, is a National Leader in Abacus and Mental Arithmetic programs specially designed for children in the 5-13 year age group. Creative minds is the indias’s fastest growing Abacus training company. It has trained more than 25,000 students in the last 8 years of existence.
Before the invention of a calculator it would have been really difficult to do sums for archeology, experiments or for mere business purposes. In the earlier days a man’s hands and the pebbles used to be the counting device and there were no numerals.
It was in this context that the abacus and the counting tables were born. The abacus is the olden form of our calculator, its origins dates back to 2400 BC when the Babylonians used pebbles and dust abacus for their calculations. readmore
The abacus and the counting boards were the aids which were used to ease the calculations. In no way it
can be compared with the calculators that we use today. While using these aids the person is actually doing the calculation on his mind, the abacus is only helping him keep a track of his calculations; which make the mental calculations much easier.
Our brain is divided into two parts the left brain and the right brain. Left brain is more developed and is associated with analysis logic and storage of information but our programme is meant for whole brain development, research reveal that a very small percentage of them use their right brain and those who use it are destined to reach the top. It improves creativity, imagination, and innovative skills of the children. According to scientific analysis 85% of the brain is developed by the age of 14 years, so this is the right age for your child to take advantages of this programme.
Mental arithmetic is an age old technique and it has been widely stated that the best exercise for the development of brains is arithmetic and hence mental arithmetic.
It is also observed that when children do fast calculations, using CM 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.
Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji (1884-1960). According to his research all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras or word-formulae.
In the Vedic system 'difficult' problems or huge sums can often be solved immediately by the Vedic method. These striking and beautiful methods are just a part of a complete system of mathematics which is far more systematic than the modern 'system'. Vedic Mathematics manifests the coherent and unified structure of mathematics and the methods are complementary, direct and easy.
The simplicity of Vedic Mathematics means that calculations can be carried out mentally (though the methods can also be written down). There are many advantages in using a flexible, mental system. Pupils can invent their own methods, they are not limited to the one 'correct' method. This leads to more creative, interested and intelligent pupils.
