# Brain Abilities

## How The Brain Works

Ever wondered what makes the human brain work? Our brains are unique organs of our bodies, allowing us to think and reason, and providing us with many abilities. And just like all other parts of our body, we need to exercise our brains so that they will function optimally, This is particularly important for our children, as their brains are still being developed and need the right mental exercises to develop to their fullest capabilities.

## Exercise Your Brain Through Mathematics

One of the best ways for your child to exercise her brain is through mathematics. Math puts the cognitive skills of the brain to the test by compelling one to analyze data and putting that data into a logical sequence. In order to solve mathematical problems, your child needs to equip with these abilities:

Z

#### Attention

One of the important thing is to be able to focus on the problem at hand. Your child needs to be able to focus on the question that is being asked.

Z

#### Visualisation

Next, where a mental picture needs to be formed. It is through this visual process that the solution to the problem can be envisioned.

Z

#### Memory

This is another important requirement – a child of any age will have some basic multiplication tables and formulas committed to memory, this will enable them to solve basic math problems.

Z

#### Logical Thinking

This the basis for planning the steps to solve more complex problems, a crucial skill that your child’s needs not only in the subject of math in school today, but for all other subjects and areas of life.

Z

#### Processing Speed

When each ability mentioned above has been mastered, increasing the speed at which information is processed will aid in solving problems quickly.
