Subject: manual counting methods
Name: Steven D. Edmonds Who is asking: Parent Level: All
Question: I once heard about a manual counting method which when learned at an early age allowed one to be able to perform large calculations manually. I believe that name of the method (phonetically) was "chisenbok".
Is there any such creature? Where would I find information on this topic?Hi Steven,
The technique is called Chisanbop. It was developed by a Korean schoolteacher, Sung Jin Pai. I went to an Internet search engine, searched for Chisanbop and found quite a few sites. One site with an example to show you how the system works is Family.com: Disney Online - NY - ChisanbopCheers,
