What is mental arithmetic?
Mental arithmetic is a system with which children are able to solve arithmetic problems of high complexity in their mind faster than a calculator. But the main achievement of using this technique is the acquisition of such important skills as photographic memory, concentration of attention, self-confidence, sociability, logic and analytical thinking. This allows you to fully develop the abilities of the child.
How does it work?
In classical education, attention is paid to the development of the left hemisphere of the child’s brain, which is responsible for logical thinking.
While mental arithmetic successfully develops the right hemisphere too, which is responsible for figurative thinking, imagination, musical, artistic and other creative abilities. And consequently, it develops the joint activity of two cerebral hemispheres.
The main tool in teaching mental arithmetic is the ancient Roman abacus.
Counting with abacus
The learning process begins with the fact that children move the bones on the abacus according to certain formulas.
At the next stage, children imagine an imaginary abacus and mentally move the bones on it. Thus they switch to the mental counting.
The child easily combines two types of actions. For example counts and plays a musical instrument

Unlike many schools, the specialists of the “Akademia Rosta” center did not just take a ready-made teaching method, but based on the leading schools of Japan, China, Turkey, and Russia, developed their own unique teaching method for mental arithmetic.
Our technique is characterized by the following features:
Akademia Rosta instructors are primarily experienced teachers who have passed competitive selection, trained in a single system and passed the qualification exam
The learning process is divided into 10 difficulty levels, which allows you to develop a child in stages and control his training at each level
Starting from the second week, the child begins to solve tasks by connecting a mental count
