Watch these clips below to see a much easier type of math in action based on ancient Egyptian and Chinese maths styles.
Modern day computing is based on the Egyptian method.
There is no learning of times tables and instead a very intuitive and easy to follow system.
This could be very beneficial for children who have learning issues, particularly the Chinese system as it gives a visual representation of what is being calculated.
So if you or your child has difficulty with traditional approaches, try these methods, you might find them more effective and easier to understand.
