 Japanese term or phrase: 百マス計算 The name of a math drill for children. It seems to be somehow different from the "one hundred chart". Here is a sample: http://www.geocities.jp/ifstk/sansu/hyakumasu/hyakumasu.htm Can be used to practice sum, addition, multiplication, etc. I need the name in English. Would really appreciate a reference, if possible. Thanks in advance.

100 cells calculation, 100 boxes calculation, 100 mass calculations

Explanation:
It's really hard to find a reference for this one, but since nobody else has answered I'll take a stab at it.

I found one site that translated the term as "100 boxes calculation" and one that translated it as "100 cells calculation". The second link also referes to it in the page title as the "100 mass calculations", which is the literal meaning of the Japanese text.

Sorry I can't find anything more concrete. A lot of searching didn't turn up much. Maybe someone else can be more helpful.

このように100のマスを埋めていく作業を繰り返すことによって、計算の正確さと速さを養っていきます。PCではタブキーで移動しながら、テンキーで打ち込むといいでしょう。ノートPCではつらいね。計算機うちの練習にもなるかも！？
