Abacus Frequently Asked Questions
Q. 1 How does Brain Develop?
Ans. Actually, the child’s brain starts to monitor things from sixth month onwards, when it is in mother’s womb. After the birth it starts learning remarkable things available in the surrounding up to 15yrs. But the growth of the brain is mature within 8yrs. So it is necessary to feed all the useful matters to the child as early as possible to bring them as Genius. However, there still is much that is unknown about our brain. What we know up to this point includes that human brain is created at an early stage of embryo development and that cerebral nerve cells are already made by the time of birth. Within the brain, the brain stem (controls heart & internal body functions) and the cerebral arch cortex (controls basic instincts) are basically completed while in the womb. On other hand, humans have highly developed cerebral neo cortex that can create nerve cells. This cerebral neo cortex is immature at the time of birth. In following years, suitable stimuli starts to activate nerve cells in neo cortex.
Q. 2What does activation of the nerve cell in neo cortex mean?
Ans. A nerve cell in neo cortex consists of 14 billion sets of motor nerves and sensory nerves. This set creates the network in which they contact each other and make up a living nervous system. The importance lies in how much sets of nerve cells we can activate in our lives. We can activate nerve cells by providing stimuli to create connections between nerve cells, as more the connection of nerve cells more intelligent the person becomes. Note 1: In this sense, starting Abacus learning as young as possible is useful in activating the brain.
Q. 3 What is Structure of our Brain like?
Ans. The human brain consists of the right and left brain. The Left brain is also referred to as the digital brain it controls reading, writing, calculations and logical thinking. Right brain is referred as analog brain it controls three – dimensional sense, creativity and artistic senses, both right & left brain work together to allow us to function as humans. Note 2: The Abacus use not only develops right brain but also helps in synchronization of both the parts of brain to work in effective way
Q. 4How does use of Abacus improves Concentration?
Ans. In the Abacus official examination, you have to provide a certain number of correct answers within the time limit of ten minutes. For example, in the first grade examination for multiplication, you have to move your fingers more than a hundred times to operate the Abacus for multiplying a six-digit number by a five-digit number. During the calculation, the multiplication table is mentally recited thirty times. Then, an answer of eleven digits is provided. Not a single mistake can be allowed in this process. When a question such as this is repeated twenty times, the examination is completed. Fingers move more than 2000 times only for the multiplication test. We believe you now understand that Abacus education develops concentration through the training of finger movements.
Q. 5 What ability of Visualize and to be inspired improved by use of Abacus?
Ans. Mental calculation can be classified into two groups. One is the Abacus method that uses the right brain. The other is the mathematical method that uses the left-brain. In the Abacus method of mental calculation, the right brain memorizes the patterns of answers processed. In this method, answers are stored in the long-term memory as intuitive images. The memorization method (which uses the left brain) that is commonly utilized for examinations only uses the short-term memory. There seems to be no wonder that 80% of the students at the University of Tokyo and Kyoto University have learned the Abacus. This type of brainpower is acquired through mental calculation training. People who start this training while still young are more likely to acquire this brain power effectively.
Q. 6 Ability to Observe Attentively (Insight)
Ans.Mental calculation can be classified into two groups. One is the Abacus method that uses the right brain. The other is the mathematical method that uses the left-brain. In the Abacus method of mental calculation, the right brain memorizes the patterns of answers processed. In this method, answers are stored in the long-term memory as intuitive images. The memorization method (which uses the left brain) that is commonly utilized for examinations only uses the short-term memory. There seems to be no wonder that 80% of the students at the University of Tokyo and Kyoto University have learned the Abacus. This type of brainpower is acquired through mental calculation training. People who start this training while still young are more likely to acquire this brain power effectively.
Q. 7 How brains information processing capacity is increased by use of Abacus?
Ans. A tremendous amount of information is available nowadays. The ability to rapidly process necessary information is one of the most important abilities in the twenty-first century. Training for information processing with numbers is realized through the Abacus method of mental calculation (anzan). Numbers are read rapidly without any mistake and are processed in the right brain. The information is then converted to accurate numerical data.
Q. 8 What is Speed Reading & Listining
Ans.There is a training component called mental calculation of figures read out aloud (yomiageanzan). In this training, a problem is read out aloud while the student promptly comprehends and mentally processes it. It may seem like an outdated way of learning, but it actually trains the brain power of listening intently, or speed listening. ‘Seemas’ have scientifically developed and highly structured program, which cultivates our childrens talent more and more. A time-tested skill, results intangible.
Q. 9 What is the advantage of in-depth Abacus Education?
Ans.Abacus Education helps to improve Concentration, imagination, Photographic memory, Accelerate both the Left and Right side brain and Helps to Excel in academic education invariably in all Subjects.
Q. 10 Is it true that AbacusEducation improves Concentration and Photographic Memory?
Ans.Certainly, AbacusEducation helps to improve Concentration, imagination and Photographic memory etc…
Q. 11 Is AbacusEducation Improves School- Mathematics?
Ans. a. In our life, calculation is involved in every moment and every action. Mathematics is used as base to teach AbacusEducation, but it is not really for mathematics. AbacusEducation is for brain development, to improve the right brain abilities and to improve the information processing between the brains. b. So, once the ability of brain functions improves all the area of brain functions will help to succeed in their life for their life time. AbacusEducation, not only improves the mathematics and creates interest on mathematics, it also helps to improve overall academic skill and helps to tackle the day – to – day challenges
Q. 12 Is it better to learn short term AbacusEducation?
Ans.Yes, it is better to learn only the operating system on Abacus instead of calculator, but, if you want to realize the reality and benefits of Abacus you must practice at least 15minutes a day, also at least continuous 2 hours in a week until 3 years, this is a must to become a talented person in all walks of life.
Q. 13 What are the advantages of Long term learning of AbacusEducation?
Ans.In-depth learning gives more clarity about the subject, in-depth meditation gives more clarity in one’s life, in-depthAbacusEducation is like teaching meditation in childhood, in-depth practice in AbacusEducation will give more clarity and confidence in every action in their day to day life. So in-depth (long term) learning of Abacus is very important to realize the real effect for their future life. Otherwise it will become like using calculator.
Q. 14 Does AbacusEducation affect the school mathematics and other subjects?
Ans.This kind of problems and belief prevails mainly among teachers and school managements, but it is not true, it is better to verify the history of the institution, back ground of the company, quality of Education, teaching methods, syllabus, number of levels, duration of teaching, value of certificate, authentication of certificate of the institution which offer the franchisee, authentication of certificate issued to franchisee, instructor and children. Company’s rights to offer franchisee, where they learned from, how many years in the field;verify the check list before joining to learn and investment.
Q. 15 Are all the institutions imparting same AbacusEducation
Ans.The simple answer is NO.
o The quality of skill and knowledge, brain development and IQ will vary based on the quality of the institution and Abacus teachers. Always there will be difference in quality between the branded items and platform one.
o For consumable items it is ok to use platform items some time, and then we can throw them. But, AbacusEducation changes the children’s future. One should not think about the platform kind of quality, this is very crucial to choose the right institution to admit one’s child and get license to teach AbacusEducation to the children in our society.
o Lack of awareness is an advantage to the fraudulence
Since there are no opportunities to learn to know the real effect of Abacuseducation, one can register his/her son/daughter or teach Abacusin institutions available nearby their home and one can choose to do business or teach Abacusto their children in nearby his/her place which has no international recognition, not following internationally structured syllabus, international formulation of teaching methods, not able to take the children to international events.Because they have the knowledge on Abacuseducation like ice sticks on 10th hand of the persons from the top. The 10th person will not knowwhat the real taste of the ice fruit is when it was in 1stand 2nd person’s hand, as the 10th person of institution or teacher will teach Abacus what they learnt from 9th person only.
o Scientific Illusion
i. Also must be aware that all the ISO certified institution on quality management systems is not genuine on their product; ISO quality management certification is for documentation to follow the quality management on office activities. It can be obtained by any shop keeper, saloon, business institution, commercial department etc. to do their activity as per procedure.
ii. But the ISO certificate on quality management system, the certificate issuing authority will not check the quality of the product you are selling or manufacturing or teaching and training, will not check any duplication or copied or malpractice in business activities, they will bother about the management system what they follow, they won’t check the genuineness of the product or services.
o Clarity in Action will give good results
So the public who want to do business and join a company to do business and parents who want to register their children in an institution must be very careful about these kinds of companies and must verify their authentication before entering into their office to get the real effect of AbacusEducation and its benefits.
o Nature of Fraudulence
People running fraudulent institutions can compromise on everything you demand, also they may offer many things to attract you, because they want to do business for that moment, after that season, they will jump to other popular item to duplicate and market it cleverly to the innocent people.
One cannot assure your child or business will be successful if you join fake institutions, it is your responsibility to choose the right institution to get real effect on all your learning and investments.
