ALOHA Mental Arithmetic Ireland is a fun-filled afterschool educational programme for children aged 5 – 13 years of age.
The programme, which is currently taught in 38 countries worldwide, uses the abacus and other methods to aid children’s mental development.
The fun, interactive classes are based around three key activities:
- the abacus, a game of beads
- mental arithmetic
- didactic games and fun group activities.
Research has shown that using the abacus improves children’s ability to calculate mental equations and develop cognitive abilities such as attention, concentration, creativity, imagination, spatial orientation, listening, analytical ability, photographic memory and observation. Students develop the ability to visualise a math problem by regular practise of the abacus and eventually the student will learn to solve the problem without the aid. By using this technique, students develop a photographic memory. Much more than a math class, ALOHA Mental Arithmetic classes include didactic games and group activities in order for children to develop other lifetimes benefits.
The next term of ALOHA Mental Arithmetic classes will begin in September 2018 but for Summer 2018 we would like to invite you for ALOHA workshops feature the character John Neuron, a superhero with special skills who teaches children to enhance their mental capacities all while having fun. To register for Summer Camp please visit our website on www.alohaireland.ie With over 4 million students worldwide and 25 years of experience, ALOHA’s programme has been scientifically proven to enhance children’s mental development. Children learn to concentrate better; develop an excellent ability to calculate and experience a general improvement, not only in maths, but in all subject areas.
