# Speed Math: The Way to Improved Problem Solving

Learning Math stimulates the brain, allowing it to solve problems more effectively and quickly. This is demonstrated by studies like as one done on a first-grade class, which discovered that pupils who could quickly retain addition knowledge were better able to master other skills and ideas. It is critical to cultivate problem-solving abilities because they are necessary throughout one's life.

In terms of development, childhood is an important age. It is the time when curiosity is at its peak, interests begin to develop, and therefore, when skills can best be honed. This age can be compared to a sponge; a time when we not only absorb but retain more information than at any other point in life. So, there is no better age for your child to master math now!

## Why is speed Math Better?

While there’s nothing wrong with the conventional techniques of learning math (most of us have learned this way), wouldn’t you rather have your child be taught uncomplicated and faster techniques? Introducing Speed Math!

As the name implies, Speed Math provides ways to solve mathematical problems, including complicated ones, at near-lightning speed. However, the focus is on speed, precision, and simplicity. Speed Math provides simple procedures that are easy to learn and retain, eliminating the need for rote memorizing of math information. While Speed Math does not replace learning the schedule, it does educate you to calculate more difficult problems faster than you might think!

The Trachtenberg System of Mathematics and Vedic Mathematics serve as the foundations for Speed Math. Vedic Mathematics is based on a book authored by the Indian monk Bharati Krishna Tirtha ji Maharaj and originally published in 1965. In it, the author presents mathematical skills that he believes originated in the Vedas as a system of mental computation. The Trachtenberg System of Mathematics was created by Russian engineer Jakow Trachtenberg. He is supposed to have invented this quick mental calculating procedure to distract himself and keep his mind engaged while in a Nazi concentration camp.

A study published in Clinical Psychological Science revealed that engaging the brain’s prefrontal cortex during mental math exercises is linked to better emotional health. According to a professor of mathematics at Stanford Graduate School of Education, students learn math best when they approach the subject as something they enjoy, rather than as exercises and drills they fear. She notes that number sense is the foundation for all higher-level mathematics. With Speed Math, you can foster an innate intelligence for numbers helping you to apply appropriate methods to effectively solve problems.

Speed Math makes solving arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, etc., problems, even complex ones, easier for everyone, especially children! By making math not only effortless but fun, Speed Math kindles interest and excitement for the subject, cementing the foundations for higher math and mental math!
