Program Description

*Ongoing. You can join anytime throughout the year.

Using an abacus makes it possible to learn how to estimate and round off quickly, as well as improve understanding of compounded numbers. Many children who become proficient in the abacus can eventually visualize the Soroban (abacus) in their minds and perform high-level arithmetic without the aid of any calculating tool.

There are no tricks or shortcuts - just persistence and true strategies for success. An experienced instructor will help students strengthen their foundations and improve their computational skills.
