Children Eager for More Number Crunching this Summer? Crazy, but True!

PRLog - Jun. 11, 2014 - SURREY, Canada -- The school term may be coming to an end, but parents of participants in the recent Aloha Mind Math Competition might be shocked to find their kids wanting more of that most frequently dreaded of the ‘three Rs’ this summer: arithmetic!

Nearly a hundred competitors from across Canada, all of whom trained using the Aloha Mind Math method, ages 5-13, gathered in B.C. this past week to show off their math skills with the help of their trusty abacuses. The Aloha approach uses the ancient tool to help children understand complex math problems while engaging them cognitively. Unlike other approaches to mathematics, it engages both hemispheres of the brain allowing for overall improved development in a variety of areas. Proof of the method’s effectiveness was evidenced by the success of the event.

“We were thrilled just to see how many kids were in attendance – it’s not often you see children getting that excited by math, and it just goes to show how effective the method has been in helping them to gain confidence not only in their skills, but in themselves,” says Paramjit Mann, Master Trainer for Aloha Canada.

The competition was Aloha Canada’s first such event, but organizers say it’s unlikely to be their last. “Beyond the turnout, their results exceeded all of our expectations – there were uniformly high scores across all the age ranges, and most of the races were extremely tight, we could not have been happier. I think everyone in attendance was impressed by these kids. And most importantly, the students themselves had a great time competing.”

While the Aloha approach has been popular globally for some time, it has only recently been adopted in Canada. Currently there are just four academies in the country, but word about its results is spreading amongst parents, and demand for further franchising is increasing.

More information about the Aloha Math Method, locations, and franchising can be found at their website www.alohacanada.ca (http://alohacanada.ca/) or by contacting Dave Melenchuk  at dave@alohacanada.ca
