All Aloha centers in New York are participating in this year’s 2012 Aloha Math Olympiad on Sunday, June 17th at Mineola High School. Nearly 250 students from ages 5-14 will be participating in the competition to test their skills in a 5-minute timed exam of 100 math equations.
Residents are invited to learn about the Aloha program by visiting the event, from 10am-3:30pm. The scheduled is as follows: Student Participation Recognition Ceremony, English Program Presentation, Student Graduation Ceremony, Acrobat performance by Happy Chef, Mind Math Demonstration, Teachers Appreciation Ceremony, and Winner’s Award Ceremony.
The ALOHA Mind Math program initially teaches students arithmetic using an abacus, and later develops students’ ability to visualize abacus calculations in their mind. Mental arithmetic helps develop the right side of the brain, which is often underutilized and therefore underdeveloped. Many school curriculums are devoted to strengthen the left side of the brain, which encompasses activities such as computation, logic, and verbal thinking. Often forgotten, the right side of the brain controls activities such as intuition, imagination, and visualization. In developing the right side of the brain, the ALOHA Mind Math program aids in whole brain development, which helps children improve focus, attention span, creativity and memory retention – essential skills for mastery in all subject
