## Teaching Principle

Calculator is a very common instrument for computing numbers in the world today. However, learning how to compute numbers mentally is still very important. This is especially true for children age 6 to 15. Parents should not miss the window of opportunities to introduce their children the correct method to learn mental arithmetic which will promote the overall abilities of the brain.

Approximately 88% of the world population are right-handed. Right-handed people have more developed left brain and less developed right brain. ( Due to heredity, custom, and convenience, 95% of Chinese population are right-handed. ) Medical experts indicated that the creative ability of the right brain is almost a million times that of the left brain. Computers, calculators, robots, and other business machines were all invented to facilitate the function of the left brain. There is no substitution for the function of the right brain. It is necessary for a person to cultivate and develop such capacity. The abilily of the right brain is the determining factor for a person to excel in studying and career development.

From birth to the age of eighteen, the range of the brain development is far greater than the physical growth. During this period, a child will invariably become brighter if ample simulation has been given to his/her brain, especially the right hemisphere. There are more than one way to promote the abilities of the brain. The most direct and effective practice is to utilize both hands. The movement of the two hands represents one third of the total brain activity.

The right hemisphere of the brain commands the motion of the left hand, and the left hemisphere of the brain commands the right hand.

American children also learn J.S.U.M.A.

Conventional mental arithmetic technique requires the children to spend a long period of time learning abacus. As a result, only the left hemisphere of the brain is stimulated and right half of the brain is ignored.

J.S.U. MENTAL ARITHMETIC does not teach children how to use an abacus but teach them how to use their ten fingers. Special emphasis is placed on the movement of the left hand in order to stimulate the activities of the right hemisphere of the brain. Later on, children will be introduced to abstract mental arithmetic via some semi abstract paper teaching aids. J.S.U. MENTAL ARITHMETIC designed both the teaching technique and teaching materials to follow the principal of stimulating the right hemisphere of the brain.

To children above the age of 6 who has the concept of quantity and numbers under 100, J.S.U. will provide the thinking style learning opportunity incorporate with everyday life. The results of J.S.U. MENTAL ARITHMETIC are astonishing It not only brings forth to children conspicuous progress in studying, but also increases their concentration level, memory power, creativity, reasoning, imagination, organizational skill, and overall development. Mental calculation is only one of the many benefits that J.S.U. MENTAL ARITHMETIC can accomplish.

J.S.U. MENTAL ARITHMETIC is enjoyed and welcomed by the children from the Island of Taiwan, Kingmen to Singapore, Malaysia, United States of America, Canada, and Australia in recent years. Last year the tour into Beijing, Shanghai, Wu-Han, Xan Young, Guan Chou was very well received and welcomed. We hope not only Chinese children but also children of the other nationalities can also benefit from J.S.U. MENTAL ARITHMETIC technique.

## 「曾」叫人受不了的「教授」

如果一位教學十餘年的老師，仍常常談起他國中導師的帶班方式如何如何，您一定會很好奇：他會是什麼樣的老師？雖然國中畢業到現在將近四分之一個世紀，我依然敬佩這位教我們學頑皮豹走路、教我們大考大玩的導師-曾春兆老師。

記得在第一堂課時，老師告訴我們：知道德國為什麼強盛的嗎？因為他們有強壯的體格及確實的時間觀念，所以在班上的每一位同學，都必須要學會游泳，游泳一可健身，二可自救救人（別忘了台灣四面環海！），三可建立信心。從此，每到假日，規定全班早上六點到遠在海邊的台東市立游泳池集合（因學校沒游泳池），而且不准遲到，記得德國人是很準時的！經過一段時間的傳授，還沒學會游泳的同學，沒關係，老師就主動幫他報名游泳比賽，保證一天即可學會，夠酷吧！

## 補數學和學心算哪個重要

◎從一般的角度看，心算是數學的一部份，換句話說，心算包含於數學。從深層的角度看，正確的心算教學法使右腦活化後，再學同屬於右腦功能的數學比較輕鬆愉快(還有創造、思考、想像、組織、綜合整體…等右腦功能)，說「心算包含數學」也不為過。

◎有些家長熱衷於填鴨式數學補習，就算一部份學生數學會進步，但是，很多學子還是越補越大洞；學正確的心算就像給一塊耕地施基肥，土地肥沃以後，不管種稻米、大麥、大豆、小米、花生、地瓜、高梁…，只要按照該作物的耕作要領就能豐收。學正確的心算，95%的學生數學會進步。

◎心算七段的黃心盈升國一的暑假，隨團赴大陸訪問三週，通霄國中一年級利用暑假教新的數學課程，暑假結束的考試，心盈是七個班級中數學唯一滿分者。總而言之，補數學是治標炒短線，學正確心算是治本放長線釣大魚。
