|For Balanced Improvement of the Left & Right Brain|
CMA advocates the use of both hands in Mental Arithmetic as research findings have shown that if both the right and left brains are stimulated together, the balanced growth will enhance your child’s intelligence, ability to calculate complex arithmetic, concentrate better and longer, respond better and improve your child’s memory and imaginative skills.
A) Left Brain and Right Brain
CMA provides a unique learning environment, where each student learns at his own pace with personalised teaching using carefully designed teaching materials, that fits individual needs and progress of the students. As such, the class can begin at any time. It is an interesting phenomenon in CMA that students with different levels of skills can embark the course in the same classroom using different levels of learning materials and progress at different speed. This proactive teaching method between the teacher and students encourages an interactive and cooperative learning environment that captivates the interest of the student in learning arithmetic.
What does it mean to be Left-brain or Right-brain dominant?
Many scientists agree that there seem to be two mode of thinking: the intuitive, creative mode of the right brain hemisphere and the highly logical, organised mode of the left brain hemisphere.
