How it works

We use the abacus to teach math.

The first thing your child receives is a special “toy” — a small abacus. The abacus is a calculating tool as old as civilization itself. Ancient societies used the abacus to figure out problems long before they invented numerals to keep track of things.

Child Learning Maths on Abacus

Math becomes fun

Your child is taught to move beads around on the abacus to do simple addition and subtraction. Soon children can visualize the beads in their minds. Then they no longer need the abacus. Math becomes fun.

Your child learns to visualize the abacus to arrive at an answer. Before long he can give you an answer in the same time — or faster — than if he were using an electronic calculator.

The results will astound you.

Once your child has learned to focus and visualize, it’s not long before she will be performing like the six-year-old in this video. See a little boy do complicated arithmetic in his mind with the speed of an electronic calculator.
