The fastest people at Mental Math are using techniques that aren't taught in schools to help them solve problems with much less effort.
I'm an International-Level Competitor in Mental Calculation, representing the UK six times in events such as:
Mental Calculation World Cup (2012, 2016, 2018)
Memoriad (2016 with a Bronze Medal in the Hectoc Category and a new record in Calendar Date Calculations)
Mental Calculations World Championship (2017, 2018, 2019)
I run the biggest website for advanced Mental Math training, and I'm one of the official trainers who prepare the under-20s for the Junior Mental Calculations World Championship.
There's a whole assortment of Mathematical tricks I use in order to perform at this level, but in this course I've chosen the most practical techniques and facts for real-life use, and quickest for you to learn.
The most important goal of Mental Math in this modern age is to calculate high-quality estimates at lightning speed. For perfect precision we all have calculators now. Therefore I've filled this course with the best techniques for accurate estimation, and some other exact techniques that are faster than a calculator.
My goal is to quickly make you into one of the fastest people you know at Mental Mathematics!
By the end of this course you will:
Be able to quickly find very accurate estimates to ANY multiplication or division
Know the optimal method for learning information such as number facts (and even vocabulary for languages!)
Evaluate deals quickly in order to easily select good value items
Convert between Fahrenheit and Celsius, miles and kilometers, pounds and kilograms, and other common units
Switch between currencies in your head without worrying about paying the wrong price
Calculate percentage discounts in sales
See quickly what any test score is as a percentage
I've made this course compact and efficient, so that even the busiest learners can benefit from the techniques taught in this course, and there are plenty of practice activities so you can level up your skills at your own pace.
The first videos of sections 2, 3, 7 and 8 are available for a free preview for a more detailed introduction to the content you'll be learning here.
By enrolling now you'll have unlimited access to the resources within, and the support of myself and your fellow students as you learn your new skills.
See you in the videos!
