 Indiaclub.com Description

Teaching your child is important. Teaching your child to think is more important. This book will help you - the caring parent - combine the unique knowledge of your child's personality with the latest research on how children learn at each stage.

Mathability is a skill that teaches a child how to think. Mathability is a skill that develops the inherent intelligence potential. It enhances problem solving abilities and analytical focus. The methods and the techniques are just as suitable for adults as for children. Indeed many of the methods have altered the mindset even of senior executives and housewives.

We carry within us the seeds of the genius we seek without. Each one of us possesses a mathematical brain. An ingrained power, a creative energy, a greater problem solving capacity than we probably give our self credit for.

With a better understanding, you can influence yourself and your child to take maths on. It is a great subject. Don’t knock it. It is your and your child’s competitive edge. It is the future.

Nothing is more important. In today’s increasingly complex and technological world the most important thing you can do for your child is to nurture mathability. It is an attitude. Those who say that their child is poor at maths’ are doing themselves an injustice. They are undermining the
child’s future.

 About the Author

Born - 4 November 1939 Achievements - Shakuntala Devi is an outstanding calculating prodigy of India. On June 18 in 1980, she again solved the multiplication of two 13-digit numbers 7,686,369,774,870 x 2,465,099,745,779 randomly picked up by the computer department of Imperial College in London. And this, she did in 28 seconds flat.

Born on 4 November in 1939 at the city of Bangalore in Karnataka state, Shakuntala Devi is an outstanding calculating prodigy of India. Belonging from a very humble family, Shakuntala Devi's father was employed as a trapeze and tightrope performer and later on, as a human cannonball in a circus. It was once while she was playing cards with her father at the age of three that it was discovered that she is a calculating genius. It turn out that she beat him not by slight of the hand, but by memorizing the cards.

When Shakuntala Devi was six years old, she demonstrated her calculation skills at the University of Mysore. And by the time, she was 8 years old, she had again proved herself successful at Annamalai University by doing the same. However despite apprehensions from some quarters, Shakuntala Devi did not lose her calculating ability with the setting in of adulthood like other prodigies such as Truman Henry Safford.

On the other hand, in the year 1977, Shakuntala Devi obtained the 23rd root of the digit number '201' mentally. On 18 June in 1980, she again solved the multiplication of two 13-digit numbers 7,686,369,774,870 x 2,465,099,745,779 that were randomly picked by the computer department of Imperial College in London. And this, she did in 28 seconds flat. Her correct answer to this multiplication sum was 18,947,668,177,995,426,462,773,730. This incident has been included on the 26th page of the famous 1995 Guinness Book of Records.
