i think i might want you to try learn flash anzan.....
from this source
I've been telling you all how fabulous the Japanese soroban abacus is.
After using a soroban for a while, you become a maths genius, because you end up with a mental 'image' of a soroban and you can 'move' the beads very quickly!
I found a video of young boy called Austin who has obviously come from a soroban. You can see his right hand 'moving' the soroban as he imagines the beads. Pretty quick at addition!
If you fancy seeing how you do, the visual anzan training software he was using is available for you to try!
It may make you feel better to know that I am completely useless at this too!
