EFFECTS OF ACUTE PHYSICAL EXERCISE ON MATHEMATICAL COMPUTATION DEPENDING ON THE PARTS OF THE TRAINING IN YOUNG CHILDREN
The aim of this study was to determine whether acute physical exercise may increase the ability to quickly solve basic mathematical operations in young children. In this way, the children acquired the means to activate a larger area of the brain when necessary. The research sample of 38 preschool and 18 schoolchildren was tested in basic mathematical operations before and after physical exercise. The results showed that children’s computational performance was enhanced significantly during exercise and remained stable after relaxation part of their physical training.
