Sakamoto Math Method consists of three simple basic steps. The first step is analyzing the problem, determining the essential facts from the question, and grasping the relationship of the data to each other. Here, the students organize and co-relate the information systematically in a tabular form.
The second step is translating the information gathered in the first step into a linear diagram. The linear diagram will help the students determine and understand the logic behind the calculations that they must do in the next step.
In the last step, students write the equations and do the calculations to arrive at the final answer. Using the Sakamoto Math Method, children are trained to grasp the essence of the question and reduce it to a simple diagram formula.
