Creative minds India, is a National Leader in Abacus and Mental Arithmetic programs specially designed for children in the 5-13 year age group. Creative minds is the indias’s fastest growing Abacus training company. It has trained more than 25,000 students in the last 8 years of existence.
We specialise in the study of the right brain, its application and development to evaluate and design programs that will foster and nurture the young’s multiple intellectual development. Intense research and innovation has enabled us to provide a vibrant learning environment that will stimulate and realise the full potential of every student.
Established upon a bedrock of high standards and aspiration, we build upon the knowledge and learning of other disciplines such as mathematics and linguistic to further complement them. We aim to nurture a community of creative thinking individuals who do not simply follow but lead! Bringing creative skills and formal education together to shape the young into balanced life-long learners who will excel in the challenging future.
In today’s competitive world, one who is equipped with various skills is in the forefront. Great care is required from parents to nurture the potential in children to bring out the best in them. Neurologist says learning is easy and fun up to the age of 14. Our leaders of tomorrow are developed by parents and educational institutions. Our Academy, through its educational programmes , is committed to raise Indian children to be champions for challenge.
Before the invention of a calculator it would have been really difficult to do sums for archeology, experiments or for mere business purposes. In the earlier days a man’s hands and the pebbles used to be the counting device and there were no numerals.
It was in this context that the abacus and the counting tables were born. The abacus is the olden form of our calculator, its origins dates back to 2400 BC when the Babylonians used pebbles and dust abacus for their calculations. readmore
The abacus and the counting boards were the aids which were used to ease the calculations. In no way it
can be compared with the calculators that we use today. While using these aids the person is actually doing the calculation on his mind, the abacus is only helping him keep a track of his calculations; which make the mental calculations much easier.
Our brain is divided into two parts the left brain and the right brain. Left brain is more developed and is associated with analysis logic and storage of information but our programme is meant for whole brain development, research reveal that a very small percentage of them use their right brain and those who use it are destined to reach the top. It improves creativity, imagination, and innovative skills of the children. According to scientific analysis 85% of the brain is developed by the age of 14 years, so this is the right age for your child to take advantages of this programme.
Mental arithmetic is an age old technique and it has been widely stated that the best exercise for the development of brains is arithmetic and hence mental arithmetic.
It is also observed that when children do fast calculations, using CM methodology through their mind, they need to use their imagination, memory, analysis, logic, creativity, listening skills, vision etc. because, both part of their brain gets exercised, therefore co-ordination between them also increases.
Vedic Mathematics is the name given to the ancient system of Mathematics which was rediscovered from the Vedas between 1911 and 1918 by Sri Bharati Krishna Tirthaji (1884-1960). According to his research all of mathematics is based on sixteen Sutras or word-formulae.
In the Vedic system 'difficult' problems or huge sums can often be solved immediately by the Vedic method. These striking and beautiful methods are just a part of a complete system of mathematics which is far more systematic than the modern 'system'. Vedic Mathematics manifests the coherent and unified structure of mathematics and the methods are complementary, direct and easy.
The simplicity of Vedic Mathematics means that calculations can be carried out mentally (though the methods can also be written down). There are many advantages in using a flexible, mental system. Pupils can invent their own methods, they are not limited to the one 'correct' method. This leads to more creative, interested and intelligent pupils.
Interest in the Vedic system is growing in education where mathematics teachers are looking for something better and finding the Vedic system is the answer. Research is being carried out in many areas including the effects of learning Vedic Maths on children; developing new, powerful but easy applications of the Vedic Sutras in geometry, calculus, computing etc.
The basis of Vedic mathematics, are the 16 sutras, which attribute a set of qualities to a number or a group of numbers. The ancient Hindu scientists (Rishis) of Bharat in 16 Sutras (Phrases) and 120 words laid down simple steps for solving all mathematical problems in easy to follow 2 or 3 steps.
Vedic Mental or one or two line methods can be used effectively for solving divisions, reciprocals, factorization, HCF, squares and square roots, cubes and cube roots, algebraic equations, multiple simultaneous equations, quadratic equations, cubic equations, bi-quadratic equations, higher degree equations, differential calculus, Partial fractions, Integrations, Pythagoras theorem, Apollonius Theorem, Analytical Conics and so on.
