top of page ## What is Abacus Math?

Abacus Math is a mental Math program that enables students to be faster, accurate and confident at mathematical computations.

This program is based on the Japanese abacus tool known as the “Soroban”. ##### What will my student learn in the Abacus Math Program?

Abacus Math teaches the use of the abacus tool to perform the following mathematical computations.

• Subtraction

• Multiplication

• Division

As a student progresses in this course, they learn abacus visualization techniques and can perform mathematical computations with great speed & accuracy.

##### Why should my student learn Abacus Math?

Students who learn to operate the abacus tool & perform mathematical operations using it experience the benefits of the left and right brain stimulation.

The Abacus Math curriculum at The Math Pal includes various exercises which are aimed at

• Improving a student’s Focus

• Developing their photographic memory

• Sharpening their Listening skills

• Improving speed & accuracy of calculations

• Building confidence

• Helping students in applying abacus techniques to their school math curriculum  ##### Why The MathPal Abacus is unique?

We understand that each student learns differently based on their age and their grasping ability.

We have courses aligned in a manner that they can be easily tailored to each individual student’s level.

We let the student decide his/her pace of progress while encouraging and motivating them. ## BEGINNERS
