They do it by manipulating an imaginary abucus it's incredible! It's almost visual in your mind's eye rather than just working it out!

Those hand movements she is using indicates that she learned how to calculate on an Abacus, and is now using an abacus in her mind. (Also, that giant thing behind her is an abacus, so that should be the dead giveaway).

In most schools in Japan, I believe it is a requirement for all students, starting at a young age, to learn how to use an abacus.

Oh whoops. Suppose I should have read #9.

While I won't discount that some genius kid is using a mental abacus, months ago I checked out the Brainetics DVDs that teach this type of thing. Here's the catch that they DON'T tell you...


You spend hundreds of dollars on the DVDs to find that YES you can add a list of 7 numbers whether they be in the tens, hundreds or thousands, AS LONG AS the list follows a Fibonacci series and you know which digits of which number in the series to add. These are not random numbers that you might come across and be helpful in everyday life like say, when grocery shopping? I made it through about half the DVDs before chalking it up to parlor tricks.

it's taking her longer for that problem because there are more steps in the division since its dividing by a smaller number than the others. if she pictures an abacus that means she has to picture move movements basically..

All credit to the little girl but she got quite a few wrong. 1), 5), 12 and 13) were all wrong but, to be honest, not by much. I'm saying this as a 34 yo engineer with a calculator so even though she got a few wrong I'm still really impressed.

the method seems to lack a counter-measure, or so called double-checkin of those results: it's dangerous to believe it should spread and adopt, it's not mathematics, scientifically. as long as it's only for the kids, looks impressive, none the less. yet people should sight for an alternative to paper and pencil, max.

#(removed comment) well at least, she can answer faster than you may think. if the teacher ask you the same question, I bet it will take years for you to answer it.

she is a savant. I recommend born on a blue day by Daniel Tammet, he is a savant (for example learned Icelandic in a week). In his book he explain that we all have this "machinery", but we use it for languish, not for numbers, but if we think about our own skill with languish then we should all be amassed by our brains. Nature is the shit

#23 the program was available for $15 on the advertisement I saw about less than 24 hours ago, even free shipping. You're right that the shortcuts for those only work during certain circumstances, but you can do all sorts of crazy things with an abacus and regardless the numbers.

If you go to the website, you see the $14.99 is a 14 day trial price, after which they charge you the $149.99. If you search the internet for scams related to Brainetics, you'll see cases where they charge BOTH the trial fee AND the full payment of $149.99 at the time of order, then suddenly have difficulties refunding the money if you call them on it.
