How to write faster



Doing calculations with pen and paper I’m a 25 or 30% slower than with computer, any technique?

The biggest problems for me are to write while doing next calculation, can’t concentrate in both, and the calligraphy writing fast.

Most of us think faster than we can physically write, and typing is faster than writing. But isn’t the aim here to be able to solve the calculations entirely in your head?


Please give a specific example of a calculation which you say is 25-30% slower than a computer.




In example a 10x10 addition or a 6 digit Square root.

I actually go a 10 or 15% slower writing than typing so it’s just practice :slight_smile:
