Why should children learn Wang’s Mental Math?
Learning Wang’s Mental Math not only can your child master the skill, they can have fun doing it! In the series, the books teach the child a new method of rapid addition and subtraction. Can you imagine your child being given an addition and subtraction problem—such as, "what is 469 + 763 – 872?"—and having your child solve the problem without a calculator and without pencil and paper?
What are the advantages to teaching Mental Math to a child?
Based on evaluations of children who have learned the Mental Math method, children’s addition and subtraction skills are greatly improved. It is clear that there are the great advantages to the children after learning Wang’s Mental Math of addition and subtraction over before. To practice addition and subtraction with Wang’s Mental Math helps develop not only coordination of vision, hearing, kinesthesia, and brain, but also the concentration.
Usually people use only one side of the brain to do addition and subtraction. Mental calculations use not only the left side but also the right side of your brain. Some data are processed in the left brain. Others, including carrying over and borrowing are processed in the right brain. To use two sides of the brain to do addition and subtraction is much fast than use one side of the brain. Carefully following each step-by-step instruction in the book series, you can help the children develop the use of both sides of the brain to add and subtract. As children progress with the Mental Math method, they will also develop their memory.
How long would teachers and parents take for them to learn how to teach Mental Math?
Following the lessons in the book series, teachers/parents are equipped to teach Mental Math to their students. Teachers and parents often ask if they must themselves master Mental Math in order to teach it. The answer is no.
What is the best age to learn Mental Math?
Our experience shows that children between the ages of 6-9 are best suited to quickly learning the Mental Math process. In some cases, children as young as 5, or even 4, can begin to learn the process.
