1. Dr. Write
It is a handwriting tool. Handwriting is a basic tool used in every subject – taking notes, taking tests, and doing classroom work and homework for almost every content area as well as in language arts classes.
Because… poor handwriting can have a pervasive effect on school performance.
1. Why Dr. Write
Learners will develop…
- Hand and eye coordination
- Fine motor control.
- Correct letter shapes by following the suggested sequence of movement.
- Appropriate use of pen lifts.
- Legible handwriting, even at speed.
- Strategies to access their own technique and style.
2. Brain Sharpener
Is it possible everything we read once can be remembered as it is?
1. Can we remember name of every person we meet?
2. Can we remember list of mobile numbers?
3. Is it possible to remember paragraph as it is?
Answer is yes. It is possible…
But the Question is HOW????
There are many techniques that can make the memorization process easy and effective; any individuals can memorize a large number of digits or words just by utilizing some memory techniques and tricks. It’s amazing.
FEATURES OF BRAIN SHARPNER
1. Increase concentration power.
2. Exercise their brain, tap into it and utilize it to the fullest potential.
3. Improve creativity through multi-sensory learning.
4. Increase alertness and awareness through observation training.
5. Boost self-confidence and enthusiasm through positive mental training.
TECHNIQUES OF BRAIN SHARPNER
1. The Link Method
2. The Number/Rhyme System
3. The Number/Shape System
4. The Alphabet Technique
5. The Journey System
6. The Roman Room Mnemonic
7. The Major System
3. Power Math’s
1. Vedic mathematics is a system of mental calculation developed by Shri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji which he claimed he had based on a lost appendix of Atharvaveda, an ancient text of the Indian teachings called Veda.
2. It claims to have applications to more advanced mathematics, such as calculus and linear algebra.
BENEFITS OF POWER MATHS
- It helps a person to solve mathematical problems 10-15 times faster.
- It reduces burden (Need to learn tables up to nine only).
- It increases concentration and improves confidence.
- It helps in Intelligent Guessing (Knowing the answer without actually solving the problem)
- It is a magical tool to reduce scratch work and finger counting and improve Mental Calculation.
WHY POWER MATHS?
The Sutras (aphorisms) apply to and cover each and every part of each and every chapter of each and every branch of mathematics (including Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry – plane and solid, Trigonometry – plane and spherical, Conics – geometrical and analytical, Astronomy, Calculus – differential and integral etc.) The Sutras are easy to understand, easy to apply and easy to remember.
4. Santa’s Abacus
The abacus, also called a counting frame, is a calculating tool used primarily in parts of Asia for performing arithmetic processes. Today, abacus 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 abacus.
The abacus, also called a counting frame, is a calculating tool used primarily in parts of Asia for performing arithmetic processes.
Abacus sharpens the brain. Brain gains more expertise in solving mathematical problems with abacus. Later on the student can perform the calculations without using abacus, by just visualizing the abacus in their minds. Abacus answers the primary need of the students to make fast and accurate calculations.
Focusing on development of mental calculating abilities it also develops….
- Memory Power
In Japanese, the abacus is called soroban (“Counting tray”), imported from China around 1600. The 1/4 abacus, which is suited to decimal calculation, appeared circa 1930, and became widespread as the Japanese abandoned hexadecimal weight calculation which was still common in China. The abacus is still manufactured in Japan today even with the proliferation, practicality, and affordability of pocket electronic calculators. The use of the soroban is still taught in Japanese primary schools as part of mathematics, primarily as an aid to faster mental calculation. Using visual imagery of a soroban can arrive at the answer in the same time (or faster) as obtainable with a physical instrument.
