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
