Indore: Did you ever know that memorising and fast mental calculation could be learnt through a trick?

In a fancy display of their mental ability, students of Daly College taught quick tricks of memorizing long list of names and mentally doing several mathematical functions at a time to the leaders of schools on the last day of G20 conference on Thursday.

Students gave live demo on UC MAS Mental Arithmetic (which is a modern representation of ancient art of mental mathematics, a concept that originated in China) .

G20 coordinator Aseem Saxena said, “Students impressed the heads with these techniques as their tricks were also put to test in a number of ways".

Students were given a list carrying 20 names which was showed to them for 30 seconds. Students surprisingly remembered every name on the list.

"They were puzzled with the chronology with questions like which name follows which and students successfully gave the correct answers," Saxena said.

The UC MAS training to improve the mental ability of children is given through ABACUS technique.

Ananya Sethi, Anant Kasliwal and Rajveer Singh displayed their arithmetic skills while Aryan Pthak, Amogh Kavthekar and Mohil Jain displayed their memory power before the guests.
