# Mental Maths

**What is
mental Math?**

**Mental
Maths is a skill or an ability that lets us do Maths calculations in mind
without any concrete thing like calculators, paper, pen, or other aides. In Mental Maths methods, the child is
introduced to a concept that helps solve arithmetic problems in a logical
way. In mental Maths calculations become
easier by breaking the complex problems into easy steps calculations. This is
done by breaking apart the numbers into digit values. For example, 33+65 to get
this answer when you split these numbers apart in tens digit your head like
30+60=90 and then into one’s digit like 3+5=8 adding these gives you the
correct answer that is 98.**

**In mental
Maths the brain is trained to use a skill called working memory which is
necessary for learning and reasoning. This working memory is in contrast with
long-term memory which helps stimulate the cognitive skills of the child. **

**Mental
Maths for kids**

**Training
the kids to perform mental Maths helps kids develop the number sense. Kids with
a strong number sense are confident enough to connect the numbers fluently in
their minds. These help build a child’s confidence and encourage flexible
thinking thereby removing Maths' fear and inculcating love for Maths. Mental
Maths keeps the child’s brain quick and sharp helping the child function well
in their day-to-day life situations like calculating and comparing prices etc. **

**Maths in
every aspect of life**

**When do
we think about the Maths problem we often end up thinking why is it so
important to learn Maths? How would it help me besides calculations of some
basic things? When such a question
arises think once again isn’t Maths important in each and every aspect of life
besides calculations? Think about Maths and its everywhere right from the kitchen
to sports ground to construction sites and where not it is needed. So, when
Maths has so much importance why not build this strong foundation in your child
that will help them solve every life problem with ease. Encourage your child
from an early age to understand the Maths concept and practice the calculations
mentally. **

**Tricks
for mental Maths**

**Let your
child calculate Maths in mind rather than memorize, as this will helps develop
your child’s mental abilities. Encourage
the child to multiply, subtract, add, divide the numbers by visualizing and
using mind and fingers to solve the problems. Performing Maths solution in mind
is a kind of brain exercise, which helps sharpen the brain. when the child will
start using their mind for calculations they will automatically start using
their brain for other problems too, and hence it is said that mental Maths help
develop other cognitive skills. **

**Harness
your child’s full potential **

**Do you
know your mind is more powerful than calculators? If the child’s brain is
trained to perform mental Maths at an early age it will boost their brain power
making them genius in every aspect of life. It is imperative to engage a child
in mental activities such as reading, playing games related to the mind,
listening to music, think clearly, learning new skills as these activities help
stimulate the child’s brain-power. Maths skills are one of these mental
activities that help enhance the child’s brain development, as the child is
able to determine Maths equations with accuracy and speed using their brain. **
