The function of Abacus Mental Arithmetic in Exploring Children’s Intelligence In The Early Stage
Through the practical teaching and proof from researchers, mental arithmetic had mobilized the learning initiative if children in mathematical concept, and give free rein to develop their right brain, letting the children react faster, think nimbler and smartly, understand deeper and stronger remembrance on the lessons taught on school.
Recognize the causality of objects is the substantial feature of human thought. This recognition formed and developed by the influence from living and educational factors during the infant period. Mental arithmetic works effectively in strengthen children’s ability in abstract thought. Recognizing the causality of objects cause children think smartly, strengthen his contingency ability; uphold his competitiveness, conception and judgment.
Applying the abacus mental arithmetic teaching method of U C MAS as the enlighten teaching for the children will be able to double out the effectiveness and subsequently shorter their comprehensive time and obtain the effectiveness faster. The formation and development of mathematical concept and operation ability is the important part in developing children’s thought. According to investigation on researches and a series of classrooms’ observation, abacus mental arithmetic is beneficial in enhancing children thinking ability, especially the function of right brain.
The abacus, also called a counting frame, is a calculating tool used primarily in parts of Asia for performing arithmetic processes. Today, abacuses are often constructed as a bamboo frame with beads sliding on wires, but originally they were beans or stones moved in grooves in sand or on tablets of wood, stone, or metal. The abacus was in use centuries before the adoption of the written modern numeral system and is still widely used by merchants, traders and clerks in Asia, Africa, and elsewhere. The user of an abacus is called an abacist.
