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.

  • Addition

  • 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.
