Yes, you are right. There must be face-to-face interaction. But I remember that must not be a lot of interactions, because the child learn very fast.
Another interesting fact is that until 6 months or so they need only some short "lessons", then they can differ the sound of the foreign language (e.g. Chinese) as good as the babys from the foreign countries.

I have no idea. But Dr. Titzer (from your baby can read) once said in a video that until 4 years old, the foreign language will use the same brain region as the first language what is more efficient. After that, our brain will build/use another region for foreign language.
Hope this helps.

Hi aangeles,

congratulation to the amazing result!
We use LR & LM, too. But can not remark such a result. My daughter can not read yet. She seems only like to watch the pictures and not like the words at all (If I switch to only words she doesn't want to watch it anymore). Do you also use the option "word, media"?

Hi Skylark,

I haven't teach any EK yet, but I have got some idea of how to do it in LR through some existing LR files (use search function in download section):
"mammals 1" from Nbailey
"Butterflies and Moths Encyclopedic Knowledge1" from heyblue41
"snake facts" from patreiche
9  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Re: Doman math success - Mail from IAHP on: July 30, 2009, 08:43:10 PM
Hi Questers,

Thanks for sharing the reply from IAHP with us. I am very interested in the answers to your questions, too. But their reply somehow didn't reveal the answer.

"But we do note the fact, as quoted above from the book." - They seems not really have the real answer to our questions either. I have looked in their book again and still find that it is not well explained there.


Point 1.
On page 89 of this edition it says, at the top of the page: “Beyond two years of age, recognizing quantity or true value gets harder every year.”  After reading that book I thought this statement is only for new learners. I still thought that this ability once learned would be retained.


Poing 4.
Some parents aren't successful even starting very early. More over, look at page 173: "Beginning anything new or different with an eighteen- to thirty-month-old can be a challenge. He is of course highly capable and will move through the first step to the fifth step rapidly once we have a happy consistent program started." Isn't their answer contradictory with page 173, is it?
10  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Re: Math - giving wrong answer phenomenon on: July 21, 2009, 11:34:51 PM
So far, so good. I'm getting sceptical about Doman Math. The failure rate is high.

e.g. http://www.childandme.com/doman-math-does-it-work/

Nevertheless, I still want to give my child the opportunity.
11  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Re: Math - giving wrong answer phenomenon on: July 21, 2009, 11:22:13 PM
I find this quite intesting.

The Functions of Rapid Math Calculation
Here, we discuss the functions of math from the left brain perspective and how doing math through the right brain allows you perform complex math equations faster than a computer.

A Left Brain Math "Genius"
 
Before discovering the incredible right brain functions of math, I saw a guy on TV dazzling the viewers with his amazing rapid math skills. Somehow, he was able to add, subtract, multiply and divide large random numbers very quickly. I wanted to do math like him so I bought the course.

At first his rapid math system seemed fairly simple. Basically, I learned to group together and temporarily store different chunks of numbers in my ming from an equation while putting together other chunks, then assembling them all at the end for the answer. It worked great but what I found is, if I made one wrong calculation along the way, of course the final answer was wrong at the end.

Also, as I progressed through the lessons the equations became more and more difficult. I found trying to keep multiple chunks of numbers in my mind just got too mental. My brain ended up shutting off to this system (and I may have popped a few screws from my head along the way) so I dropped the course.

Looking back, what I know now is that this "math wizard" really did have incredible rapid math abilities and figured out a system that works - for the left brain. That may be fine for some, but for contrast, let's look at a faster way much younger children are solving even larger equations - the right brain way!

Right Brain Rapid Math Calculation

Equations solved by A. T., Nagoya (age 2 yrs-8 mths). © The Shichida Method.Here's the scenario: You walk into a classroom and observe young children concentrating on their lessons. As you walk around you notice a little girl saying rather large numbers out loud as she's looking at a small writing board. This interests you, so you wonder over to see what she's looking at. What you find is amazing: She's shouting out the answers to six-digit math equations! You ask her how she does it. An assistant comes over to answer your question because the student doesn't speak English. She simply says, "She sees the answers in her mind."

Ok, you're kidding, right? How can someone, let alone a child, instantly see the answer to a math equation in her mind? She must have memorized the answers to some pre-written equations! Well, I've seen it myself and it's real. As fantastic as it sounds, people are capable of solving complex math equations faster than a computer. Let me tell you how real rapid math calculations are possible!

Mathematics is not like Geography
In his book, How To Teach Your Baby Math (see at right), Glenn Doman says, "Mathematics is not a subject like geography but a way of thinking and reasoning." The functions of math are really just a series of visual symbols that we arrange into other symbols. Following this idea, Doman and Shichida developed math programs using symbols instead of numbers and actually succeeded in teaching math to babies and very young children. Although the methods used by Doman and Shichida vary slightly, they both generate the right brain visual input allowing complex equations to be solved instantly.

Instant Rapid Math Calculation Through the Subconscious Mind
Solving large math equations instantly is not a function of conscious (left brain) mathematical calculations. The answers automatically come from the subconscious where they are calculated instantly. Through the right brain, we literally see a picture of the correct answer in our mind's eye. However, we need to be in the right state of consciousness to see it. Think of it like baseball: If you're not in the right spot on the field at the right time, you won't catch the ball that was just batted to you. In most cases, being in the right place to receive the answers that appear in your mind takes certain training.

It's True! I Can Do It Too!

Ok. Here's my experience with rapid math calculation.

Sometimes, when looking at numbers on paper I can hear my mind saying, "I need to add these." Or, "I need to multiply these." Instantly, the answer appears in my mind. It happens so quickly that often I hardly take notice. Sometimes, the answer will appear and then, in another instant, it's gone. When I do make conscious (left brain) contact with the answer appearing in my mind, I write the answer down.

What I just described doesn't happen all the time but when it does, my logical left brain tells me it can't be right so I usually verify it by hand or by using a calculator. What I find is my instant answer is always correct.

Dr. Shichida's Research Confirms This Ability
 
Child educator and pioneer in right brain education, Dr. Makato Shichida, tells us there are a great many five- and six-year-old children all over the world who can correctly multiply and divide five- and six-digit numbers in seconds. He believes that this is the right brain activity of fast calculation and imaging mechanisms. In fact, he verified his supposition using data from Positron Emission Tomography (PET) testing of brain waves. This data shows that the right brain function of highly skilled abacus users are active when carrying out arithmetic operations. This contrasts with the rest of us, for whom the left brain is more active when doing arithmetic with a calculator. Remember, earlier we mentioned that the use of symbols in math equations activate the right brain's instant math abilities. The abacus uses a series of visual symbols - beads.

So, if we want to train our children to calculate faster than a computer, we'll need a suitable math program and exercises we can use to develop our right brain's natural imagery and visualization abilities. This will enable our conscious awareness to see what our subconscious is showing us, which in this case, are answers to math problems.

Thank you very much Chris. I am figuring out how the Ten Frame Method works from your description. I didn't find much info through google. Maybe I have to ask you more later. wub.
13  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Re: Math - giving wrong answer phenomenon on: July 18, 2009, 09:30:01 PM

Dear Chris,

Could you please tell me where can I find more information about your method of teaching math?

And maybe you can provide us with some pictures of how you teach? (or more description)

How old are your children when you started with the Ten Frame Method? How long have they been doing that? What can they do in Math now?

I find the Doman Method is maybe "too good to be true". It seems not to work for every child!?! I would switch to your method after trying more Doman Method. Thank you for sharing us your experience so we all can learn from it.

14  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Re: Math - giving wrong answer phenomenon on: July 17, 2009, 01:11:05 PM
Thank you for your reply Nadia.

I guess that for doing Math they need to be in a certain condition (relaxed, alpha state...) !?

Well, I am a bit disappointed about Doman Math because of the high failure rates and that they do not explain that well in their book (they write only positive things).
15  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Math - giving wrong answer phenomenon on: July 05, 2009, 10:38:09 PM

Hi all,

As you know I try to teach my daughter Math. For this purpose I have read some thread in this forum and some blog article of DomanMom. There she wrote e.g. that her "Hunter" usually got wrong answers if she took videos. There she also write why learning Math isn't like learning Geography.

That's make me thinking a lot.

Obviously it isn't easy teaching Math like teaching to read. Not every parents are successful in teaching Math.
Obviously children tend to give more wrong answer (than in other subject) when asking to do choose right number or problem solving.

My daughter e.g. always give the right answer when we ask her things (picture or real life) like "where is the elefant, where is the windmill etc.". Even if we ask her for the things she knows very well, she doesn't get fed up and give a wrong answer.
But why she answer 50 - 50 by math!?

Can anybody share this experiences? Thanks in advance.
